26th Year— No. 1. 


Monday, Sept. 19. 


Hail To Thee 

The red carpet has been rolled out in grand welcome to you, the 
Freshmen. In the next few days you will find yourselves wrapped in a 
5lanket of collegiate confusion, which will be dispelled only after the 
arrival of the upper classmen. You will then be subjected to all those 
tortures you've been hearing about. When you go home for the first 
time you will be changed. You may not know then, or for a long time 
after that, but you will be changed. No one leaves college the person 
he was when he entered it. At least, that is the hope of the educators. 

La Vie has taken the trouble to bring out a special issue for you 
jecause there is a growing feeling on this campus that Freshmen should 
be more than abused nonentities. It is hoped that this year will see a 
growth in school spirit, of which there is a decided lack on this campus. 
The place to start is with you, the frosh. This issue is to demonstrate 
to you that many students on the campus are eager to help you get 
3tarted in the right way. School spirit is something hard to find, and 
once found, hard to keep. The freshmen of any school are those who 
3hould be the first to find it and the last to surrender it. They should 
be the ones who cheer the loudest at every game (it's taken for granted 
that they attend every game), know every school song, give of their 
time to school projects (as long as their marks are unaffected), and 
push the school along in this way. In other words, a synonym for 
3chool spirit is Freshmen. 

LVC is split into many little groups, some conflicting, some not. 
It is up to the Freshmen to see that they do not become too influenced 
at the beginning of the school year by and of these groups. The fresh- 
tnan must stand a little aloof for a few weeks until he gets his bear- 
ings. Then he must choose, and be all-out in favor of that group he 
jhooses. He should not spread himself thin over his activities, be- 
cause he will then defeat his purpose. What this school needs, in fact 
ft-hat every school needs, are workers who have the time to work. 
Better to do a good job for one, than poor for all. 
In this little issue of La Vie you will perhaps find some of the 
mswers to the many questions in your minds. The editors have done 
meir best to put a lot into the two sides of this sheet. They have over- 
.ooked many organizations, just as good as those mentioned. So you 
see, don't let yourselves be too influenced by what you see when you 
irst arrive on the campus. 

If you have any questions, ask the upperclassman. If he seems 
o forget that he was once a freshman, remind him. See what happens. 

Ahem . 

This is a call to arms to frosh. You will see elsewhere in this 
■ssue a notice of the first staff meeting of La Vie. This is to ask that 
my and all freshmen who are in any way interested in the paper make 
n appearance at that meeting this Friday night. La Vie plans to hold 
•egular staff meetings over the entire year in order to help the re-

I ANDY KERR — Lebanon Valley 
Jollege was fortunate enough to 
fain the services of one of the 
lation's all-time gridiron coaching 
Teats for the 1947 season, two 
fears ago. Andy, as he is affec- 
lonately known to all his associ- 
ates, came to Lebanon Valley with 
ne of the greatest records ever 
ompiled by an American football 
oach, after being retired by Col- 
•ate where he served with distinc- 
lon for 18 full seasons. Andy has 
ained the respect of the nation's 
op gridiron mentors, writers, and 
ans by turning out winning teams 

year after year for the past thirty 
or more years. Behind Andy lies a 
glorious and respected gridiron 

For twenty-three years Andy 
has been directing the destinies of 
the All-East club in the Shriners' 
annual East-West game in San 
Francisco, Calif. This is Andy's 
third year at the helm of the Ann- 
ville gridders. 

At the annual meeting of the 
American Football Coaches Asso- 
ciation, held in San Francisco, in 
January, 1949, Andy was elected 
to honorary membership in the as- 
sociation. He is also recipient of 
the award of the New York Touch- 
down Club, in 1946, for "outstand-

advancement for the game of

A Message From 
The President 


The stream of college life is re- 
newed annually by the coming of 
new components. After graduation, 
these individuals leave the camp- 
us; but they do not lose their 
identity — they take the campus 
with them by incarnating the spirit 
of their Alma Mater and faithfully 
representing her as loyal alumni. 

Your Alma Mater will foster 
the spirit of friendliness. She will 
teach you how to learn by living 
and how to live by learning. 
Specific instructional social situa- 
tions will generate within your 
heart a desire to become a sharing 
member of society. Academic pro- 
ficiency without social matura- 
tion may become detrimental to 

The campus of a small college 
is one of the best places in the 
world to develop enduring 
friendships. While the message 
was being written, my wife and I 
heard a song welcoming us to our 
new home. The South Hall girls 
had assembled on the adjoining 
lawn to sing their friendliness 
into our hearts. By the alchemy 
of that expressed friendship we 
immediately had a feeling of be- 
longing. In the same spirit I bid 
you welcome to Lebanon Valley

. . . Student Faculty Council 

Now that you are experiencing your first week of college life, you 
Freshmen are probably finding many problems cropping up before 
you However, I can assure you that all your problems will not present 
themselves during Freshman Week or during the first semester alone, 
but will pop up at irregular intervals during your entire college life. 

It is mainly for the purpose of dealing with college problems, both 
individual and collective, that the Student-Faculty Council was formu- 
lated — or, as the Constitution states, "to provide for a coordinated 
program of campus activities and to advance the welfare and common 
interests of the student of the college." 

I sincerely hope that each of you will use this channel prepared 
for you so that your collegiate difficulties may be properly aired and 
efficiently solved. 

Good luck, Frosh.

men's organization . . . part time thespian . . . brother of Delphian . . . 
anything but literary . . . These expressions might describe a member 
of Kalo During the school year Kalo participates in any number of 
social activities, including hayrides, picnics, dances, and smokers. Dur- 
ing Kalo-Delphian week-end, which takes place in the second semester, 
the societies produce a play and hold a joint dinner dance. 

On October 1 Kalo and Delphian will entertain the student body 
in Engle Hall. A week later both organizations will hold their mem- 
bership drives. 

. . . The Political Science Club 

If you see a student wearing a hideous grin he is probably a mem- 
ber of the Political Science Club who has just thought of a way to 
make life miserable for his fellow sufferers. It has been suggested to 
this reporter that the club change its name to the Malevolent Order of 

The Political Science Club is the newest and one of the most ac- 
tive campus organizations at LVC. By practice its members gain a 
knowledge of Parliamentary procedure. Social meetings are held in 
addition to business meetings. However, the high spot of the year is 
the Intercollegiate Conference on Government to which Pennsylvania 
colleges send delegates. Through actually working at it, students ob 
tain, among other things, a knowledge of government. 

. . . The Life Work Recruits 

Life Work Recruits is an organization principally for those men 
and women interested in the ministerial field. It puts into practice 
just what its name implies by starting its recruits on their life work 
through its deputations to other churches, its affiliation with the 
YMCA, YWCA, and the college church, and other useful projects. 

Though composed primarily of the ministerial group, those inter- 
ested in lay work in the church may also participate. 

Through its deputation work in which groups of students furnish 
religious services to other colleges and churches, valuable experience 
in their chosen field and increased Christian fellowship is afforded to 
members of Life Work Recruits. 

. . . Delphian Literary Society 

On each step of her climb to the top of the ladder of fun and fel- 
lowship, Delphian has offered to her members many hours of enter- 
tainment and good times that are synonymous with college life. 

Potential Delphians have a big treat in store for them. An annual 
twilight "get acquainted" hike and a tea usher in Delphian's gala rush 
season. The suspense and peril of initiation are soon forgotten when 
the pledges can proudly exclaim, "We're Delphian." 

A play and dinner-dance, plus many dances and parties held joint- 
ly with Kalo, the brother society, are a few of the highlights of the 

. . . The Radio Workshop 

The Radio Workshop, in its third year at Lebanon Valley College, 
is an active and going concern on campus. To the Freshman radio en- 
thusiast the Workshop gives ample opportunity for participation in 
any or all of the phases of radio work — script writing, directing, or 
acting in shows. 

In former years the Workshop has given a program each week 
varying from dramatic or educational productions to the ever popular 
music programs using Lebanon Valley's Conservatory artists.

W. Henry Johnston, Director of 
Athletic Publicity, Harvard Uni- 
versity. "Persons, watching the 
razzle-dazzle of the Red Raiders 
during Andy Kerr's lengthy foot- 
ball hey-day at Colgate University 
would expect that only a mathem- 
atics teacher could produce such 
formulas, and right they were. 

Following graduation from 
Dickinson College, the little Scot 
taught mathematics at Johnstown, 
Pa., High School, but that appren- 
ticeship in numbers apparently 
was only later to build quarter- 
backs, for Kerr deserted the class- 
room for intercollegiate athletics 
and, for football in particular, 
back in 1914. 

Born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, 
the son of a stock man, Kerr re- 
ceived his elementary schooling in 
Carlisle, Pa., and was graduated 
from Dickinson College where he 
competed in three sports, notably 

When Warner accepted the head 
coaching position at Stanford he 
sent Andy Kerr ahead to install 
the double wing system which he 
had developed and in which Kerr 
later became an authority. For 
two years Andy acted as head 
coach of the Indians. He also 
coached basketball until 192 G af- 
ter which he moved to Washing- 
ton and Jefferson College as head 
coach of both football and basket- 

The witty professor made his 
greatest reputation as head coach 
of Colgate University's Red Raid- 
ers over a period of 18 years, start- 
ing in 1929. Reaching the Uni- 
versity retirement age, he com- 
pleted his tenure at Colgate in 
1946. Refusing to quit the game 
he loves so well, however, he now 
tutors the Lebanon Valley College 
"Flying Dutchmen." 

Andy Kerr directed Colgate in 
152 games. Colgate won 95 of 
these contests, most of them 
against major opposition, tied sev- 
en, and lost 50. When it is con- 
sidered that Colgate has a normal 
enrollment of 1,000 students and 
is located in a village of 1,900 per- 
sons, this is more than a good rec- 

Colgate was immediately suc- 
cessful under Andy Kerr, losing 
but five games during the first six 
years. This period was highlighted 
by the 1932 Red Raider eleven 

which was unbeaten, untied, andyears 
unscored upon while running upEsth< 
2 64 points in its nine games. The man, 
193 4 team almost matched this^ursi 
performance, its lone loss being 8 
10 to 7 defeat by Ohio State, ai Th 
eleven which itself only lost t( tors 
Minnesota's greatest team by on«Ri cni 
point. The 1929 and 1942 aggre-tant 
gations were among his best teams Holli 
at Colgate.

'49 Enrollment Drops 

The 1949-1950 college term be- 
gan today for nearly 750 students 
as classes assembled at 1:00 P. M. 
for the first session. 

Freshmen Week activities began 
Monday at 8:00 A.M. with over 
250 new students attending the 
opening exercises. Registration of 
freshmen has been completed dur- 
ing this time. Upperclassmen reg- 
istered yesterday and this morning. 

Orientation lectures, tests, and 
social events occupied most of 
Monday for the Freshmen. Ad- 
ministrative Officers, members of 
the faculty and a select group of 
upperclassmen were continually on 
hand to ease the new students into 
their noval and bewildering sur- 

Miss Gladys Fencil, Registrar, 
announced that there are 45 vet- 
erans of World War II in the first 
year class. The total enrollment, 
75 3, is slightly lower than last 
year's, one of the highest in the 
history of the college. Of the total, 
there are 517 from the 1948-1949 
term, 11 former students, and 225 
freshmen. Veteran enrollment at 
present is 215.

LV Band To Strut Novel 
Formations At Bowl Game 

Lebanon Valley's forty-eight 
piece band will make its first ap- 
pearance of this term at the Her- 
shey Stadium, Saturday evening, 
September 24, when the Flying 
Dutchmen meet Gettysburg in the 
Chocolate Bowl game. The Blue 
and White band, under the direc- 
tion of Conserv Prof. Edward P. 
Rutledge, will introduce a new 
style of drill formations at this 

During half-time the band, in- 
cluding four color guards, three 
herald trumpets, four drum ma- 
jorettes and drillmaster, will en- 
tertain the football fans with an 
exhibition of novelty formations 
and special salutes to the Rotary 
Clubs which are sponsoring the 
Bowl classic. It was disclosed that 
the improvements forthcoming in 
drill techniques was due largely to 
the use, in practice, of an original 
model of the gridiron, built to 
scale and developed by a Conser- 
vatory student, Bruce Wiser. 

Assistant to the President Dr. 
Frederick K. Miller is shown ad- 
dressing this year's crop of 
Freshmen during a Freshman 
Week convocation. The talk 
was one of many designed to 
brief the newcomers on their 
adjustment to the strange rigors 
of the academic environment.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 22, 194 La \ 

A Word To The Wise 

This Chocolate Bowl Edition is especially dedicated to the aims 
and spirit of the drive which inaugurated the Chocolate BoavI in this 
area. ~ The great work of the Rotary Foundation needs no de- 
scription from this quarter. It is, of course, the primary interest 
behind Saturday's contest. 

However, we cannot ignore the tremendous possibilities of this 
aproaching gridiron match in relation to what is bandied about as 
school spirit. Occurring when it does, attracting a wider range of 
correlative interests than the run-of-the-mill game, it affords an op- 
portunity for the ideal commencement of an intense and highly active 
student participation in the sports program of the college. Our will- 
ingness to "get out and cheer," to springboard the term with the 
height of interest can have no better effect than to infuse us with 
equal concern and spirit in all other activities of our school. 


Tomorrow night at se^en o'clock the first regular meeting of 
the staff of this year's La Vie will begin. It will inaugurate a new 
policy of reporting for this newspaper, one that has never been tried 
on this campus. Henceforth, all organizations on campus will be 
responsible cooperatively with the editors of La Vie for all the news 
of local interest which takes place in the next two semesters. Each 
club, governing body, and society has been asked to appoint a mem- 
ber of the organization as a more or less "press representative" to 
La Vie. These persons shall be responsible to their groups and La Vie. 
All pertinent news must be handed in by them every week. La Vie 
will print the most important of these news items, and will check 
on the efficiency of the reporters. A report on the progress of each 
reporter will be made to the organizations. The staff as a whole will 
meet every other Thursday night to discuss problems, map out plans 
for news stories, and discuss improvement of La Vie itself. It is 
hoped that this general scheme will enable the editors to publish a 
better, more representative paper for the LV student body. 

Is This "Next Year"; Do You Have An Answer? 

Since the return of football to Lebanon Valley in 1946 after a 
five year curtailment of the sport because of the war, Valley football 
teams have compiled a record of 14 wins against 8 defeats and 3 ties. 
They have scored a total of 387 points, Di Johnson scored 90 of them, 
against 2 60 for the opposition. 

In '46 the Dutchmen turned in a respectable record of 5 wins, 3 
losses and 1 tie. That year "Scoop" Feeser, former Lebanon High 
coach, was head mentor of the Dutchmen. 

Andy Kerr came to the local scene in '47 and compiled the best 
record of any of our teams over the past three years as he posted 5 
victories against 2 defeats and 1 tie to give the Valley their best 
season since 1938. Last year the Dutchmen wound up with a 5, 3, and 
1 record. 

Now as we look back over past football campaigns we haven't 
quite reached the pinnacle we had hoped. Our post-war dreams of our 
post-war teams haven't been altogether fulfilled. We were to start 
an athletic renaissance here at the Valley but up to now we haven't 
progressed as far as we might have. This is particuarlly true when 
thinking of that myth, the "new gym." 

That building has been on the fire for years and now, in fact, it 
has been on the fire so long we believe it has burnt down. True, the 
new football field will be ready next season, and from all indications 
it'll be a dandy, but even that was slow coming. 

The football record of the past three seasons, 14 wins, 8 losses 
and 3 ties is not something to shout about. It's respectable but not 
tops if one stops to consider the schedules Valley football teams have 
been playing. 

That well-worn battle cry of "wait'll next year" has been quite 
familiar around the campus, and we're still waiting. This could be 
"next year." A triumph over Gettysburg would start things moving. 

Another thing we've been waiting for is that often talked about 
but seldom seen "school spirit." Not the old "rah, rah, sis boom ah" 
type of thing that they say was so prevalent in the old days; but real, 
honest-to-goodness team support. 

"The trouble with school spirit at Lebanon Valley," a chap was 
heard to say recently, "is that there aren't enough people who have 
it." And that just about covers it. No coach or player is to blame for 
losing when he is not supported by the student body. No ball play- 
er is going to "die for dear old L.V.C." when Sam and Susie Q. Student 
sit holding hands and munching hot dogs in the stands. 

Game attendance by students has been good, very good, in the 
past. But that isn't enough. Make with the hands and lungs and the 
pat on the back to the deserving player. All of that goes into a winning 
team — you're a part of it! And this one we all must watch out for. 
Don't be too critical of any player. It's work, hard work, going out 
day after day and getting black and blue for the Blue and White. 

Remember that tomorrow night in Hershey Stadium. You're from 
Lebanon Valley and should be proud of it. Let others know it! 

Cultural Lag Points 
Up Atom- Age Conflict 


There was once a period in 
man's development when his pri- 
mary concern was his relation to 
Nature. He pried away at its se- 
crets, he tried to conquer the ele- 
ments, and he learned new and 
better ways to meet the require- 
ments of his environment. This 
early curiosity of man brought 
into being the natural sciences 
which today are sometimes called 
the "exact sciences". Their con- 
tinued growth has brought to man- 
kind a great measure of material 
rewards and an amazing knowl- 
edge of the world and the uni- 

But while man was pushing the 
exact sciences at a rapid clip he 
was lagging — and very unwisely — 
in his knowledge of the social 
sciences which are classed today 
as the "inexact sciences" because 
they deal with that most unpre- 
dictable animal, homo sapiens. The 
result — man is now akin to the 
gods in technical knowledge and 
in league with the apes in the field 
of social thinking. This cultural 
lag is the most serious problem our 
present social order is facing and 
is a problem that should command 
the attention of all college students 
regardless of their major field of 

The science major can no longer 
regard the laboratory as a sanctu- 
ary from the nasty problems of 
civilization. His work may again 
be threatened by a Hitler or a 
Stalin and perverted to evil ends. 
The scientist, along with the rest 
of us, is a social being whose ex- 
istence and whose work has social 
consequences. His discoveries and 
their uses can exert a profound ef- 
fect upon society and the scientist 
must be a social scientist as well 
if his work is to be fruitful and re- 
warding to mankind. 

No better example of social con- 
sciousness on the part of scientists 
can be found than the discovery 
of atomic energy. The atomic sci- 
entists formed an organization 
which educated the public on the 
subject, which influenced domes- 
tic legislation in the field, and 
which is trying to make the world 
conscious of its potential horrors. 
Yes, scientists gave birth to an 
awful "baby" in the atom bomb, 
but they are willing to be good 
fathers and change the diapers. 

Consider any profession or oc- 
cupation — musician, architect, en- 
gineer, chemist, lawyer, business- 
man, teacher — all are heavily de- 
pendent upon the social milieu for 
success. If the social order is 
healthy, expanding, and far-see- 
ing the chances for professional 
success are unlimited. But just 
specialized knowledge will not cre- 
ate these conditions. We need 
more social scientists and more 
socially conscious citizens to rid 
the world of war, poverty, unem- 
ployment, crime, mental disorders, 
prejudice, and gross materialism, 
to mention a few pressing prob- 
lems. A fair knowledge of the so- 
cial sciences is an indispensable 
part of good citizenship.

Frosh Footballers 

Pennsj Key To L. V. Success 

sociat When the cellophane wrapping 
te Pre: comes off the Flying Dutchmen 
~ Saturday night in the Hershey Sta- 
rl,e El dium it will mark the start of col- 

Porso lege football careers for some 20 
l,m Pc freshman footballers. The key to 

Thon * success of this 1949 Lebanon Val- 
1 J \°*ley football team will, to a great 
Rutle ■ extent, be in their hands. It is up 
A,sber to them to provide the needed 

p - °' depth and give added life to the 
y / eleven Andy Kerr has been styling 
ex Felfor Saturday night's opener. 

Kayk Up to this time some 16 of these 

frosh have shown enough talent 

and ability to stamp themselves as 

laY colle S e football players. Many of 
' them will play their first football 
for Lebanon Valley tomorrow 
night, and a few of them will go 
seasoon to become standout stars on 
es m future L. V. teams. 

nigl On a sectional basis the 16 
r's '4 frosh who have shown enough to 
psbur warrant mention are split up like 
Club' this. 7 are from Pennsylvania, 

garni 5 from New York, and 4 from Jer- 
e-tow S ey. There are 8 linemen and 8 
turn< backs.

ijurievelop into a fine wingman. He has 
seaso plenty of spring in his legs and his

— Oh Yeh! 

runner from Dallastown; "Chuck" 
Maston, a good-looking 155 pound- 
er from Elmira, N. Y., and Joe 
Giordano, a swifty from White 
Plains, N. Y. Geesey showed well 
in early scrimmages, and when he 
gets going he's as hard to hit as 
the jack-pot on a slot machine. 
Maston has turned in a workman- 
like job all along and should go 
places. He'll probably get a chance 
to strut his speedy stuff against 
Gettysburg. Giordano is a fine fu- 
ture-book possibility. He's a 
smooth, rythmic runner who can 
go all the way. 

There's another halfback by the 
name of Ken Rozelle from Scran- 
ton who's been tabbed as a comer, 

but thus far he's been a hard luck 
operator and hobbled by an ankle 
injury. You'll he hearing more 
about him later. 

Johnny Buff am oyer, a 200 
pound blond blitz from Lebanon, 
may be just what the doctor or- 
dered to plug any gaps in the Val- 
ley line. "Buffy," a fullback, has 
been used chiefly as a line-backer 
and seems to have all the neces- 
sary requirements when it comes 
to defensive ability. Another full- 
back is Ralph Giordano from 
White Plains, N. Y. Giordano isn't 
much in size as fullbacks go, 5'5", 
175 but what he lacks in size he 
makes up for with leg-drive and 
sheer straight ahead power. 

Gettysburg Favored; 
12,000 Fans Expected 

Can the Flying Dutchmen of 
Andy Kerr stop the vaunted aerial 
attack that Gettysburg is expected 
to unleash in the Chocolate Bowl? 

That's the question that will 
draw 12,000 football fanatics into 
the Hershey Stadium this Satur- 
day night to witness the third an- 
nual Chocolate Bowl game. 

Gettysburg will go into the 
game as favorites. They have a 
squad of 25 lettermen, including 
their complete starting backfield 
from last season. Last year the 
Bullets won 5 (Drexel, Albright, 
Bucknell, Western Maryland, F. 
& M.), lost 3 (Lehigh, Muhlen- 
berg, Delaware), and tied 1 (St. 
Lawrence). The team compiled the 
finest offensive record in the his- 
tory of the college as they scored 
200 points while holding their op- 
ponents to 98. 

The big noise, the guy that 
makes the Bullets boom, is Ross 
Sachs, a 160 pound passer from 
Gettysburg. Sachs, a senior, is 
heralded as the greatest passer in 
the college's history and is fre- 
quently mentioned for All-State 

Last year he tossed 15 8 passes 
and completed 76 for a gain of 
1,036 yards, 13 of his passes going 
for touchdowns. So this Saturday 
night the fans will have their eyes 
to the skies when Ross unpacks 
his sacks of aerial bullets. 

The Bullets can also go on the 
ground. They possess three fine 
pony halfbacks in Dwight Speaker, 
145 pound junior from Sharon 
Hill; Tony Cervino, 165 pound 
senior from Haddon Heights, 
N. J.; and Junie Griffiths, 160 
pound junior from Succasunna, 
N. J. 

The question mark of this Get- 
tysburgh is the line. What 
good players they lost through 
graduation were linemen. How 
well their places have been filled 
remains to be seen. 

Then there's Tom Sawyer — no, 
not the one you're thinking of. 
This one is from Rome, N. Y. His 
specialty is punting. He can boot 
'em a country mile. Sawyer could 
prove a most valuable asset to the 
team if he keeps up his fine punt- 

These are 16 of them — 16 frosh 
who will make their bid for grid 
jobs on Lebanon Valley football 
teams. Notice any Fischer's, Gage's 
or Di Johnson's among them? Time 
will tell. 




La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 22, 194 





By Bill Fisher 

There will be kisses for the victor, Chocolate kisses that is, and 
bittersweet for the vanquished when L.V. clashes with Gettysburg 
Saturday night in the Chocolate Bowl. This is the biggest "Big Game" 
of the year for the Dutchmen and it really shapes up as something 

Saturday night's game with Get- 
tysburg means more to Lebanon 
Valley athletics than any game 
we've played since the return of 
football here at the Valley in '46. 
This Gettysburg game can be used 
as a vehicle in which Lebanon Val- 
ley can ride to the top of local 
football circles. Here's how we fig- 

This 1949 Lebanon Valley foot- 
ball team that plays in the Her- 
shey Stadium Saturday night will 
serve as a measuring stick of fu- 
ture Valley teams among most of 
the fans attending the game. We'll 
be playing before 12,000 or more 
persons, most of them residents of 
Central Pennsylvania — the area 
comprising Harrisburg, York, Lan- 
caster, Lebanon, and Pottsville. It 
is in this locality, throughout 
these cities, where Lebanon Val- 
ley sports should be publicized, 
boosted, and built up. 

Most of the citizenry who will 
see the Chocolate Bowl game will 
no doubt be seeing a Lebanon Val- 
ley football team in action for the 
first time, and maybe the last. 
They are the fans who are going to 
form an opinion of L.V. football 
on this one game. If we lose, per- 
ish the thought, we will have lost 
badly needed prestige among the 
people who rarely or never get to 
see Lebanon Valley play. 

If we win, and we believe we 
will, we shall have established our- 
selves as tops among the small 
colleges of Central Pennsylvania 
and will pick-up many new fol- 
lowers and boosters of our athletic 

Remember last year's Temple 
game? We tied them, and we here 
at Lebanon Valley who won't see 
Temple play again in years, will 
always judge a Temple football 
team on that score. If this year, 
or in five years, Temple comes up 
with a good club and knocks over 
some of the big boys, we'll say, 
"Well, we tied Temple," and in 
the back of our minds will be that 
poor Temple team of last season. 

See what we're driving at? 
Most of the people who will see 
L.V. play Saturday night are go- 
ing to see us play for probably the 
first and maybe last time. They 
are going to judge our future foot- 
ball teams on the performance we 
turn in against Gettysburg. 

To our way of reasoning this 
Gettysburg game is, to use a worn 
out bit of phraseology, L.V.'s 
"chance of a lifetime." This is our 
chance to leave a good impression 
on the Central Pennsylvania foot- 
ball populace. This is our chance 

to make a reputation that will 
stick. This is our chance to get 
recognition throughout Central 
Pennsylvania that we've been 
missing in the past. This is our 
chance to get name players — Di- 
Johnson, Fischer, Lukens, Shel- 
lenberger, some badly needed pub- 
licity. This is our chance! 

Too long has Lebanon Valley 
been playing the "weak sister" 
role to Gettysburg, Dickinson and 
F. & M. This is it! The time is 
Saturday night! We can remedy 
the situation by beating Gettys- 
burg in the Chocolate Bowl. 

* * * 

The Chocolate Bowl, for those 
who do not live in this area, is an 
annual affair sponsored by the 
Harrisburg Rotary Club in an ef- 
fort to raise funds which they use 
to help deserving boys and girls. 
It was first inaugurated at Hershey 
in 1947 when Penn State beat 
Washington State, 27-7 before 
16,000. Last season West Virginia 
played Temple, and beat them, 
27-6 before 6,000. This year the 
Rotary decided to bring together 
two local colleges in an effort to 
promote more local interest and 
enthusiasm for the game. They 
have succeeded in their purpose. 

Down around Harrisburg in the 
barber shops, men's stores, and 
other places where such things are 
discussed, you can work up a 
wrangle over this coming Choco- 
late Bowl at the slightest men- 
tion of football. From the little 
we've gathered all the wiseacres 
seem to think G-burg is a shoo-in. 
They'll tell you about Sachs and 
Speaker and Cervino, etc., and 
then come up with that, "I'll give 
you Lebanon Valley and 7 points," 

Admittedly, the Bullets do look 
paper potent, but we've seen that 
kind of teams before — some of 'em 
tear like paper. Optimism is run- 
ning as high as Sachs passes in 
the G-burg camp, because on past 
records and performances they 
seem to have it over us. But this 
department is not one of skepti- 
cism. L.V. is not totally disarmed. 
We've got a sturdy line, we've got 
DiJohnson, we've got a slick back- 
field, and some 12,000 people are 
going to find that out tomorrow 
night in the Hershey Stadium. 

* * * 

We have witnessed both of the 
Valley's scrimmage games and 
four or five pre-season drills. 
Here's what we've seen. Take it 
for what it's worth.

nar. Caprio, a soph, is what is fa- 
miliarly known as a watch-charm 
guard. He's 5'5" and weighs 175. 
Last season all he got for playing 
football was bench blisters, too 
little they said, but take a gander 
at him this year. He's playing 
great ball at defensive guard. 

"Tes," an offensive guard, came 
in as a frosh fullback last year, 
then switched to center and late 
in the season played a little at 
guard. This fall he is a starting 
guard. Keep an eye on him and 
you'll see some sparkling play. 

F. & M. beat us two weeks ago 
in a practice scrimmage, 2 6-14 .. . 
We beat Kutztown last Saturday, 
21-6 .. . Bob Fischer, the big end 
from Little Falls, still has those 
glue fingers. He can pick passes 
from anywhere . . . Tom Quinn and

Progress Of NSA Noted 
Af 1949 Convention 
As Influence Mounts 

Albert Moriconi, Editor of 
La Vie, attended the National 
Student Association's Second 
National Congress as a Student 
Observer. Because this article 
which appeared in the latest 
issue of the Albrightian is so 
comprehensive, the editors of 
La Vie have decided to print it 
so that the student body may 
better understand just what 
happened at the Congress. Doris 
Chanin, who wrote the article, 
is Vice-President of the Penn- 
sylvania region of the NSA. 


Elsewhere in this issue the readers will note that the Men's 
Day Student Congress has seemingly done a lot of hard work over 
the summer. Culminating their efforts with last week's meeting, 
the officers of the organization have brought forth some very inter- 
esting innovations in methods of handling frosh. More important 
than this, however, is the fact that they have at last come out of 
the limbo in which they have been existing for a number of years. 
It might be well for some of the presidents of the other governing 
bodies to note the work of the MDSC. 

that we spent ten of the most in- 
tensive stimulating and education- 
al days of our lives at this past 
Congress which was held on the 
University of Illinois Campus. 

Our personal contacts and ex- 
change of ideas with foreign stu- 
dents as well as American stu- 
dents from all parts of the coun- 
try was of great educational value 
to ourselves, and we hope we can 
make it of value to Albright. 
Congress Divided Into Phases 
The Congress was divided into 
three phases, the Problem phase, 
the Policy phase and the Program 
phase. In order that each and 
every representative could air his 
individual views, the work of the 
Congress was broken down into 
four commissions. First, Student 
Life, which had under it a special 
leadership training conference; 
second, Educational Problems; 
third, International Affairs, and 
fourth, Administration and Fi- 
nance. I worked with Commission 
four and Kathleen worked with 
Commission Two. 

Once in our Commission groups 
we divided into small, 15-man' 
"round tables," each round table 
discussing a particular topic of its 
commission. These round-table 
groups provided the opportunity 
for every member of the Congress 
to democratically talk and be 
heard. The groups were most ef- 
fective; from them came the main 
resolutions of the Congress. 
Reports Compiled 
From round-table groups we 
went back into Commission ses- 
sions where the whole commission 
either accepted or rejected the 
resolutions and suggestions pre- 
sented from the round-tables. 
Each Commission then drew up 
reports compiling the work of the 
commission round-tables, the 
resolutions accepted, etc. and in a 
united plenary session submitted 
these reports for the entire con- 
gress to act upon. 

Discussion and decisions on 
NSA policy centered on discrimin- 
ation and segregation, academic 
freedom, international affairs, 
and federal aid to education 

This year the congress had two 
additional improvements: one, it 
maintained an efficient working 
secretariat which provided the 
continuity necessary at such a 
large _ meeting of students, and 
two, it had a number of promi- 
nent speakers present, among 
them, Dr. Harold Taylor, presi- 
dent of Sarah Lawrence Col- 
lege in New York, Dr. Francis 
Brown, American Council on Edu- 
cation and William Heyneker, 
Dutch Office of Foreign Student 

Our new national officers were 
elected the last day of the Con-

Pa. Region, USA 

American students were slow in 
forming a much needed National 
student organization which would 
represent maturely and intelli- 
gently the needs and opinions of a 
vast body of college students to 
the public and which would create 
a community consciousness on the 
part of students which would help 
permeate the university atmos- 
phere with the spirit of brother- 
hood and cooperation among fac- 
ulty, students and administration. 
But today, American students 
can proudly look to the National 
Student Association created in 
1947, as fulfilling this need. On 
September 3, 1949, at the end of 
the Second National Student 
Congress, the National Student 
year of existence. 

N.S.A. Progresses 

Having been fortunate enough 
to work with NSA since its infant 
stages, and having the honor of 
representing Albright College at 
two National Congresses, I can say 
that I have seen this student or- 
ganization develop from a squal- 
ling infant into a rapidly growing 
child. Its progress has been amaz- 

The Second Annual National 
Student Association Congress 
clearly showed the effects of two 
years' growth. The Congress was 
conducted on a more mature level 
than last year, proving that the 
National Staff had profited great 
ly by the mistakes of the first 
Congress in Wisconsin in 1948. 

Kathleen Guenther, who attend- 
ed the congress as an Alternate 
Delegate from Albright, and my- 
self, were among the 800 student 
representatives who represented 
over 300 colleges and universities 
and over one million students.

ring and pin, wash my shoe-laces, 
stand in the shower-line for me, 
save a place at meals, sell me a

I need. It's only costing me 895 
dollars which is the exact amount

The food here is wonderful and 
it will be so nice when the upper- 
classmen relax on the rules and 
let us Frosh eat. Last night they 
had peanut butter sandwiches, 
water and fruit-salad. Today they 
had peanut butter stew, bread 
and fruit salad. Tonight they're 
having fruit salad, water and 
peanut butter crackers. Gee, it's 
swell! The food runs in weekly 
cycles, for instance next week is 
Spam Week, the following week 
is Scrapple Week and the next 
week is National Mush Week. The 
dietician is a G.I. and really 
knows his stuffing. (Get the pun, 

The Profs here are very 
thoughtful of the freshmen and 
let us buy all the books that 
they've written. I have seven- 
teen books for every class and 
each one only cost nine ninety- 
five, (that includes paper covers). 
Some of the books are quite odd, 
though, because they don't have 
any printed pages; but the Profs 
assured us it was no mistake, they 
have them that way so they'll be 
collectors' items. My most inter- 
esting course is Olive-Leaf Twin- 
ing which doesn't meet because 
they can't find the Olive tree.

Mom, you can tell my girl at 
home that I'm through with her 
forever because I just became 
engaged to a sharp freshman girl 
on campus. You'll like her, i 
know, because she's so unusual. 
It might take a while for you to 
get used to her . . . she has nine 
toes and they're all on one foot, 
her hair is lovely, it's green, like 
moss, to match her teeth. She's 
i real Cosmopolitan, though, from 
Walnut Crossroads, Kentucky, 
xnd a main highway runs right 
"hrough the city. Think of the 
experience and contacts she must 
lave! In fact, she has had so 
■iany contacts with that highway 
ler face has a permanent coating

I really must sign off now be- 
cause it's my turn to sleep in 
the bed tonight . . . the other six 
nights I tie myself to the wall and 
a kind senior knocks me on the 
head with the clapper from the 
college bell every half-hour. I 
don't have any trouble sleeping 
even though it is crowded. Write 
soon, Mom, and don't forget to 
bury my dog. I forget to tell 
you he died the day before I came 
to school . . . he's under my bed. 

Your son, 



La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, September 29, 194' 




By Bill Fisher 

This would be a good time for 
everyone to keep his shirt on. 
Sure we lost to Gettysburg in the 
Chocolate Bowl, but that's only 
one game. A big one to be sure, 
and an important one too, but 
that's all water over the dam 
now. So put away the black crepe 
and haul higher the Blue and 

We don't think anyone would 
disagree if we were to say that 
Gettysburg was the better team. 
They had a fine outfit — fast half- 
backs and a sharp passing attack, 
they should go places. 

L.V.'s trouble? This amateur- 
ish eye doesn't profess to see or 
know all, we can only venture a 
guess. Pass defense we don't have. 
Blocking we don't have. No solu- 
tion is offered here. 

As we see it, Valley football for- 
tunes will rise or fall on our 
running game this season. DiJohn- 
son, Shelly, and Rozelle doing the 
heavy work. From what we saw in 
the Gettysburg game they won't 
have a chance to go if blocking 
doesn't come from somewhere. 


Individual honors for the most 
spectacular performance goes, to 
who else, Henry DiJohnson. 
Hank's 75 yard kick-off return 
down the right sideline in the first 
quarter was an eye-opener. It must 
be said though that he got fine 
blocking, for a change. And his 
punt return in the third period 
was of the sensational. 

Tom Flaherty played an awful 
lot of defensive tackle — Good goin' 
Tom. . . End play by Fischer, Ed- 
wards, and Roman was very good. 
. . . Oxley turned in a steady bit of 
quarterbacking under pressure. . . 
Walter Gillette Gage, alias The 
Razor, has been sharp in his boot- 
ing. In two pre-season games and 
the G-burg game, he has kicked 
7 consective points after touch- 

As for the ballyhooed Bullet, 
Ross Sachs, his performance was 
not particularly commendable. 
His soph stand-in, Bob Bitner, 
looked the better passer of the

Concerning the Chocolate Bowl: 

The L.V. band, as usual and as 
expected, was the best band on the 
field. Considering the limited 
practice, they did L.V. proud. 
However we did miss the "Da Da" 
song — the Colonel Bogey March. 

The Harrisburg Rotary, or who- 
ever was in charge of arrange- 
ments, fouled up horribly on some 
things. No loud speaking system. 
With a turn-out of 11,000 they 
drew a fine crowd, but many of 
the fans were irked, and rightly 
so, when the loud speaker wasn't 
used. Gettysburg did okay though, 
they brought their Speaker with 
them, we heard plenty from him. 

Another thing — 50 cents for a 
program. After all, charity or no 
charity, 50 cents for a football 
program doesn't go. True it was 
a nice 60 page job, but with all 
those ads, 50 cents, no! 


This Friday night in Harris- 
burg the Dutchmen meet Mount 
St. Mary's in a battle of fullbacks. 
Down at M.S.M. there is a full- 
back they call Wallopin' Walt, 
last name of Belardinelli who is 
touted as the hottest thing this 
side of Hades. 

Belardinelli, nicknamed the 
Danbury Destroyer, is a soph, 
stands 6', weighs 190, and hails 
from Danbury, Conn. He trans- 
ferred to the Mount last year just 
after the L.V. game and went on 
to score 10 T.D.'s in six games. 

According to the publicity re- 
ports coming out of M.S.M., Walt 
the Wonderful One is being boom- 
ed for Little All-America honors. 
He's being compared with Chris 
Cagle, the Army immortal of 
years gone by and John Panelli, 
Notre Dame fullback last year. 
Say's his coach, "He's not quite as 
fast as Panelli, but he's stronger." 
whatever that means. You'll get a 
chance to see Friday night. 

And take this one for a classic. 
Here's what Mount publicity had 
to say after the Valley beat them 
25-0 last season: 

". . . we opened against Leba- 
non Valley. Our Freshmen backs, 
unused to the lights and scared 
by the crowd, were shellacked 

The feeling still persists here 
that DiJohnson had more to do 
with that defeat than the lights or 
the crowd. Come Friday night, 
"Hammering Hank the Lebanon 
Tank" goes against "Wallopin" 
Walt the Danbury Destroyer." 
Something's gotta give, our supply 
of adjectives has. 

Whire-shirred Fred Sample, LV safety man, runs back a 
Gettysburg punt in the Chocolate Bowl game last Saturday. 

G-burg Tosses Dutchmen Foi 
Loss, 33-14, In Hershey Openei 

Lebanon Valley and Gettysburg got the jump on the rest < 
the football playing colleges throughout the nation as far as bo' 
games are concerned, as they met in the Third Annual Chocola 
Bowl Football Classic held under the arcs at Hershey Stadium la 
Saturday night. The fast-stepping and aerial-minded Bullets on 

smarted the none-too-seasoned 
band of Flying Dutchmen and went 
on to win 33-14 as an autumn 
chilled crowd of 11,000 watched 
with partisan interest. 

Gettysburg received the first 
big break of the contest when a 
bad Valley center on a fourth 
down punt attempt was too high 
and that saw the Bullets take 
over on the LV 24. G-man Tony 
Cervino went for seven yards on 
the first attempt but Paul Ed- 
wards tore into the G-burg back- 
field and slammed down Ross 
Sachs on the second down, while 
Tom Flaherty thwarted the third 
play. Sachs, the Gettysburg pass- 
ing star, finally found his mark 
and tossed a forward to Cervino 
in the end zone for the first touch- 
down of the night. Ron Fitzkee 
booted the extra point. A few 
punt exchanges later Gettysburg 
struck for another score as the 
fleet-footed Cervino reeled off a 
79-yard gallop down the sidelines 
with Fitzkee's point attempt wide. 
Not to be outdone, and thus put- 
ting Lebanon Valley back into the 
game, the line-busting and sensa- 
tional Henry DiJohnson showed 
the fans how to run the other way 
by taking the ensuing kickoff and 
racing 85 yards up the turf be- 
fore being hauled down from be- 
hind deep in G-burg territory. He 
then pulled down a pitchout cir- 
cling right end for a Blue and 

White touchdown. Walter Gai 
made it 13-7 by toeing the ext 

LVC's line tightened up ai 
seeing they weren't going any pla 
in two line plays, the Battlefiel 
ers took to the ozone with B 
Bitner hitting Don Emert for a 
other touchdown. Fitzkee split t p- . 
uprights for the extra marker. J , 
ter the ball exchanged hands a ouik 
the Orange and Blue were in p< 

session, Dwight Speaker took i 

for another jaunt but was brou?-^

zone for another G-burg TD. Fi

Campus Societies Plan 
Rush Week Activities 

The presidents of the four so- 
cieties have announced plans for 
Rush Week, to be held Monday, 
October 10 through Friday, Octo- 
ber 14. The schedule of the week 
will be as follows: On Monday the 
pledge cards for the societies will 
be distributed to the prospective 
pledges. The following day, Tues- 
day, Dalphian will entertain with 
a hike and Kalo with a smoker. 
The Clio tea and the Philo smoker 

vill be the events of Wednesday. 
On Friday, representatives of the 

our societies will be in front of 

he main bulletin board in the Ad- 
ministration building to receive 

he pledge cards. The hours dur- 
ing which they will receive these 
cards are nine to twelve in th3 
morning, and one to three in the 
afternoon. Initiations will be held 
on Monday, October 17, and on 
Friday, October 21, Philo-Clio and 
Kalo-Delphian will hold joint 
meetings to accord formal initia- 
tion to their new pledges. 

Ground For New Gym To Be Broken 
Oct. 22; Total Cost Will Top $500,000 

Dr Clyde A. Lynch announced during the last week that final 
plans for the construction of the new Physical Education building have 
been approved by the Conference of the EUB Church. He also an- 
nounced that groundbreaking ceremonies will take place at ten o'clock 
on the morning of Homecoming Day, October 22. 


These announcements 
the end of a program which has 
lasted intermittently for almost 
fifty years. The present, and suc- 
cessful campaign was begun five 
years ago by Dr. Lynch and the 
members of the LVC administra- 
tion. The money for the new build- 
ing was raised by the churches of 
the conferences, $250 thousand 
coming from the Eastern Penn 
Conference and $150 thousand 
from the Penn Conference. The 
building will cost approximately 
$4 40 thousand, the architectural 
changes and fees $14,500, and the 
equipment for the completed 
building $50,000. 

Although still offering the same 
athletic facilities, the new gym 
building will be altered in appear- 
ance and content. This construc- 
tion change was necessitated by 

the marked increase in the costs 
of building materials. The changes 
in the building are as follows: The 
elimination of the front part of the 
building pictured above, including 
administrative offices, correction 
room, and the social room. How- 
ever, there will still be the athletic 
offices which were in the original 
plans, as well as a kitchen and aux- 
iliary gymnasium, shower and 
locker rooms, and all other facili- 
ties connected with the athletic 

It is the intention of the ad- 
ministration to use the auxiliary 
gymnasium as a place for social 
affairs and small dances. Large 
dances will probably be held in 
the large gym. 

All of the plans for the new 
building are part of long range

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 6, 194! La 

Summa Cum Laude 

A line of praise for one student on this campus who is making a 
lot of other schools sit up and notice LVC — Bruce Wiser. That band 
and its formations are, in a word, terrific. Mr. Wiser has shown great 
imagination and ingenuity in the formations he has planned so far this 
year. There is no doubt in the minds of the LV student body that 
he will continue in the same vein throughout the season. The band is 
definitely one thing at the Valley that deserves all the support we 
are able to give. 

Wha' Happened? 

After many, many years of patient and impatient waiting, the build- 
ing of the gymnasium, long considered a "myth" by the students and 
alumni of LVC will begin in a couple of weeks. A loud cheer should 
be raised for all those members of the administration who have worked 
so long and hard to have the building program approved. This corner 
is well aware of the many problems which have been faced and solved. 
True, the building is not as large as was originally planned, but the 
purpose and function of it has not been altered. In fact, perhaps, the 
changes may be for the best. The money saved on this construction 
may be used in many other ways (may we point toward the library?). 
At any rate, Lebanon Valley College will at last have the gym it has 
been dreaming of for so long a time. 

Comment . . . 

Word has reached the editors of La Vie that Coach Kerr and the 
members of the team did not appreciate — to say the least — the many 
remarks which were directed at the coach last Friday night at the 
game. Having been a football coach for many years Mr. Kerr is surely 
used to hearing all kinds of remarks tossed his way during a game, 
but when he complains about the language and subject matter used, 
then comes the time for spectators to use a little control. One of the 
most popular things at a game is cheering. It is a vital part of student 
support of any athletic endeavor. But the common sense of the college 
student should control the extent of this cheering. Anything which 
even hints of direct insult is not considered, in any way at all, fitting 
for people who are supposed to have attained a certain amount of 
maturity by the time they reach college. It is certainly hoped that the 
practice of cheering the team will not be so misused in the future. 

The Freshmen inquisition has 
begun in earnest as seen in this 
picture. Led by the culprits of 
the MDSC, the frosh went 
through their paces last Tues- 
day at noon, much to the de- 
light of the upperclassmen. For 
further details, watch for the 
results of the tug of war on 
Homecoming Day. 

Freshmen who lose their L 
books, ties, and clinks are re- 
minded that they can be re- 
placed for $1.25, $.50, and 
$1.25 respectively at the office 
of Rev. Gockley in Washington 
Hall. Activities Calendars are 
also available there.

routed. Since Fred Sample is a football hero, he's the idol of half th Frf)

a sir 

My senior year! Can it be possible? Have I spent three glorioJ {Jf^ 
years inside these nothing-covered old walls? Have I really cramme Tn 
three years of academic matter into my fat little head? gr ^ 
Yet, it must be true. The Registrar — bless her little — the Regi' » Th , 
trar has affirmed my class standing. They've stopped pestering fliowi 
about my low IQ. The freshmen look at me with awe. At least, the Du „ 
awef ul. But then, don't they always. Three years . . . n ett J 


I can remember my first day 
'way back in 1946. There I was, a 
green little "greenie," as thin as 
the side view of a postage stamp. 
I had just got out of the hospital. 
As far as the Registrar was con- 
cerned I was still under the anaes- 

"Where do I go?" I asked, 
standing on one foot and scratch- 
ing my back with the other. 

"Upstairs!" yelled the Regis- 
trar in a hollow voice, her head 
being inside a file cabinet. 

I went out into the hall looking 
for the stairs. Finding them, I 
started up. I must have taken a 
wrong turn somewhere, 'cause I 
found myself out on the fire 
escape. There were three fellows 
playing cribbage. Two of them 
looked up while I stood there 
swaying with the breeze. The 
other, taking advantage of his 
partners' diverted attention, 
moved his peg up five notches. 
They looked like freshmen. 

« Jr? iya '" 1 w aved, aimably. 
Where do I go?" 

They told me. They happened 
to be seniors. But they were 
friendly; they told me exactly 
where to go. 

Three hours later I got back 
from the railroad station. This 
time I met a kindly old professor 
who took me by the hand and led 
me to the right place. 

Inside the room there were 

swarms of young people like ffi! warr

dents interested in either activity 
should contact Bob Urich. 

The following Congress mem- 
bers were named to the Publicity 
committee: Robert M. Kline, chair- 
man; David Wallace, Ronald Wolf, 
Francis Nogle, Robert Lowery.

Association on the Student Faculty 
Council for this year. 

A dance committee was also ap- 
pointed as follows: Norman Buch- 
er, chairman; George DeLong and 
Richard Bothewell. This commit- 
tee will work in conjunction with 
a similar committee of the WCC to 
make arrangements for the annual 
Day Student's Valentine Dance. 

In regard to the Freshman pro- 
gram, President Kline stated that 
The Frosh are on the ball," fol-

Sample Sparks Dutchmen To 
Victory Over Mt. St. Mary 

Lebanon Valley's grid machine scored a touchdown in the last 
minute of play to vanquish a stubborn Mt. St. Mary's aggregation 14-7 
before 6,000 persons at Harrisburg's McDevitt Field on Saturday night. 
The victory marked the seventh consecutive time that the Flying 
Dutchmen have defeated a Mountaineer football team in a series which 
began in 19 08 but which saw only sixteen contests played. LVC re- 
mained ahead in the rivalry and the record now stands at 10 wins, 4 
losses, and 2 ties. 

Lebanon Valley registered the 
first touchdown in the second per- 
iod after a seesaw battle of nu- 
merous fumbles and punts oc- 
curred in the first period. A pen- 
alty for clipping, following Tom 
Sawyer's kick, gave the Mounties 
the ball on their two yard line. 
Mt. St. Mary's Marty Green kicked 
out to LVC safetyman Fred Sam- 
ple who scampered the pigskin 
back to the Marylanders' 28 yard 
line. After Dale Shellenberger 
picked up four yards, Joe Oxley 
passed to Ken Rozelle for a first 
down on the Mountaineer two 
from where hammering Hank Di- 
Johnson bulled his way over for 
the score. Walte Gage split the up- 
rights for the extra point and the 
Kerrmen led 7-0. 

Mt. St. Mary's came back bub- 
bling with enthusiasm as fullback 
Walt Bellardinelli returned Gage's 
kickoff to his own 30; scooting to 
the 3 9 on the first play. There the 
Valley defensive held the Moun- 
ties and forced Green to punt to 
■ample, who, when hit hard by 
onrushing Mounties, fumbled the 
ball which was then recovered by 
Mount end Jack Curran on the 
Dutchman 3 7. From here a little, 
elusive scatback known to the 
crowd mostly as "Number 31," 
but named Bud Veltri, took a pass 
from Green and ran through the 
Lebanon defense as though he was 
greased to swim the Channel, for 
n MSM touchdown. Hecky Trout 
kicked the extra marker to tie the 
score at 7-all. 

Lebanon Valley kept taking 
charge of the game more and more 
as the second half wore on, but 
the score remained the same. With 
each side point hungry, Walt Gage 
came in to attempt a field goal 
in the fourth period, but the ball 
fell short of the mark and the 
Mounties took over. Finally the 
breaks came and the Dutchmen 
began flying after Sample returned 
a punt to the LVC 45. Bob Fischer 
hauled down a Sample pass on the 
Mount 47, and picked off another 
for nine more yards; then Sample 
carried for a first down on the 32. 

With time running out, the 
snappy Sample heaved a despera- 
tion pass from the 35 to Jerry 
Makris on the five who caught it 
only to be brought down on the 
one. Sample then climaxed his 
brilliant evening by plunging for 
the game winning touchdown. 
Gage toed the bonus point with 
time left only for the kickoff.

LVC To Face Southerners 
In First Home Game Sat. 

Saturday afternoon in the Leb- 
anon Stadium, Coach Andy Kerr's 
Lebanon Valley College Flying 
Dutchmen will meet their third 
opponent of the current campaign 
when they take to the field against 
a big, veteran Western Maryland 
grid combine. The game will mark 
the third time that LVC has met 
the Green Terrors in football com- 
bat. The first meeting occurred 
in 1914 when the Blue and White 
trounced the Southerners 21-3; 
while the second meeting did not 
occur until last year when the 
locals took it on the chin 13-0. 
Both the Dutchmen and the Ter- 
rors have met one common oppo- 
nent this season, and that was 
Gettysburg. The flashy Bullets 
pummeled the Marylanders 21-0, 
and as wel all so well remember 
they shot down the Flying Dutch- 
men 33-14. 

Led by triple-threat back Joe 
Gianelli, who scored three touch- 
downs and kicked three extra 
points, the visitors opened their 
1949 season by outclassing Dick- 
inson 27-7. Besides Gianelli, the 
entire backf ield that played 
against Lebanon Valley last year, 
will be ready to perform once 
again. Coach Charlie Havens will 
have Gianelli at left halfback, 
Marty Tullai, at right half, Leo 
Lathroun in the quarterback slot 
and to try and match our "Hank" 
DiJohnson, "Hank" Corrado will 
hold down the fullback duties. 
Corrado and Gianelli both hail 
from Medford, Mass., and are 
sometimes referred to as "Mr. 
inside and Mr. Outside." 

Outstanding on a not too heavy 
Green and Gold line is tackle Joe 
Cortello who was named on the 
All-Maryland teams of the past 
two years. At the other tackle 
slot is 210 pound Al Paul. The 
guard posts are filled by Tito Mar- 
garita, another Medford, Mass., 
boy and 23 pound Frank Krausa. 
The center duties will be split up 
between Walt Hajduk, a con- 
verted tackle, and Harry Bush. 
The regular ends from last year 
have been graduated, but their po- 
sitions are being ably filled by let- 
termen Charles Kobsko and Hand 


Lebanon, Pa. 



La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 6, 194! 





"a part of anything presented for inspection, 

or shown as evidence of the quality of the whole." 

That, according to Webster's Collegiate, is the definition of a 
sample, small s. Last Friday night against Mount St. Mary's Andy 
Kerr presented a quarterback for inspection, a Sample, large S, who 
showed evidence of a first class quality quarterback. 

By name — Fred Sample. A 
slight, smooth-operating sopho- 
more from Columbia who hardly 
looks his programmed 155 pounds, 
Sample's coolness in the clutch, his 
pay-off passing, his fine defensive 
play and his spectacular general- 
ship carried Lebanon Valley to 
its first football victory of 1949, 
a 14-7 win over Mt. St. Mary's. 

Fred was the man-of-the-mo- 
ment against the Mounts and his 
slam-bang showing was personally 
responsible for the Valley victory. 

Here, in brief, is a summation 
of Sample's M.S.M. performance: 
(a) he quarter-backed the team 
over half the length of the field in 
the final minutes on the winning 
T.D. drive; (b) he threw 8 passes, 
missed the first four, completed 
the last four. Three were to Fisch- 
er, and the one to Makris which 
carried the ball to the Mount one 
yard line; (c) he went over for a 
touchdown on a quarterback sneak 
in the last minute of play; (d) he 
intercepted one pass; (e) he ran 
the ball three times for seven 
yards; (f) he returned three punts 
for 41 yards; (g) he worked the 
entire game as safety man. 

So it's hats off to a guy with 
guts, the little player with the big 
heart — Fred Sample. 


The battle of fullbacks that was 
expected between DiJohnson and 
Bellardinelli failed to materialize. 
DiJohnson got 24 yards rushing, 
Bellardinelli got 55 yards. Through 
these glasses Mr. B. looked good, 
but hardly matched the build-up 
he has been given. It's still Di- 
Johnson here. 

As it turned out, we beat the 
Mounts at their own game. See- 
ing our porous pass defense 
against Gettysburg, the Mounts 
opened up with a passing attack 
as soon as they received the kick- 
off. It backfired, but good, as 
L.V.'s defense meshed perfectly 
to smother their attempted aer- 

The Mounts threw 8 passes, 
completed 3, and the Dutchmen in- 
tercepted 4. Johnny Buffamoyer 
intercepted 2, George Cardone 1, 
and Fred Sample 1. Valley faith- 
ful have a fervent hope our pass 
defense stays solid. 

The D-men achieved spectacular 
success in the air, completing 11 
for 21. Joe Oxley completed 7 out 
of 8. Ken Rozelle caught 3, Bob 
Fischer caught 5, George Roman 

caught 1, Dale Shellenberger 
caught 1, and Jerry Makris caught 
one which was good for 30 yards 
and set-up the winning Valley 

Shelly flashed some of his old 
form on snappy quick-openers . . . 
George Roman played some 
smashing defensive ball and made 
some fine tackles on his end . . . 
Johnny Buffamoyer backed-up the 
line in fine fashion . . . Tom Flah- 
erty again a defensive standout; 
he covers more ground than any 
aneman on the field. 

The game was back and forth, 
first one team then another con- 
trolling the ball, with fumbles, 
penalties, and punts keeping 
things about even, that is until 
Fred gave 'em a sample of some 
perfect pegging in the dying mo- 
ments of the game. 


In order to gather a glimpse of 
the inter-workings of the Dutch- 
men let's get statistical for a mo- 
ment. The Valley has scored 28 
points in tow games — 14 against 
G-burg and 14 against M.S.M. All 
four T.D.'s have come from one 
yard out. Gage has kicked every 

In these two games we have 
gained 116 yards rushing to 313 
yards for our opponents, and have 
passed for 275 yards against 221 
for the opposition. These figures 
seem to contradict our theory that 
all the D-men have this season 
is a running game, in fact they 
show just the opposite. 

As we see it, our poor rushing 
game lies in the fact that we still 
don't have good blocking. It 
stands to reason that something's 
wrong when a runner like DiJohn- 
son only gets 48 yards rushing 
from scrimmage in two games. 


The parade of ballyhooed back- 
field stars to hit Lebanon Valley 
continues this Saturday afternoon 
when Western Maryland comes to 
Lebanon to open L.V.'s home sea- 
son. Leading Western Maryland's 
attack will be Joe Giannelli, a 
5' 9", 155 pound junior halfback 
from Medford, Mass. 

Giannelli, a swivel-hipped swif- 
ty was the Green and Gold's glit- 
ter guy in the Terror's 13-0 tri- 
umph over the Dutchmen last 
year. He's got fair speed and is 
as shifty as they come. 

Co-captains of last week's game shake 
hands. LVC was the victor in the conflict.

the occasion. One, a seemingly 
cultured young woman with a

Trying to cover my embarrass-

On a bulletin board I found a list

I found the good professor at a 
desk in a corner of the room. He 
was browsing thruogh a well-worn 
copy of HOMER and munching 
absently on a Baby Ruth.

"What's this? he mumbled. 

"That is a list of courses I 
thought I might take the first rp-

that . . ." 

"Hrrumph!" he said, chuckling, 
probably at some joke he over-

^Battista Opens Season 
With Lebanon Concert 

Mr. Joseph Battista, former in- 
structor of Piano in the Conser- 
vatory of Music of Lebanon Val- 
Jley College, began his 1949-5 
concert season in Lebanon Tues-

capacity audience, Mr. Battista 
scored a personal as well as ar- 
tistic triumph. This concert torn 
.inch is his fourth, will take him 
ill over the United States and 
Canada, averaging about three 
concerts a week. M;r. Battista has 
3een receiving the unqualified ac- 
jlaim of music critics all over the 
country since he debuted in Car- 
negie Hall in 1947. Tuesday even- 
ing he played a series of compo- 
sitions ranging from Brahms to 

-Bartok, before an enthusiastic 

. audience containing many former 
r "associates from the Conservatory,

Flocken Joins MDSC 
At Special Meeting Of 
Congress Last Friday 

The MDSC, meeting in regular 
session on Friday, October 7, wel- 
comed a new member from the 
Junior Class in the person of Jay 
Flocken. Flocken was appointed 
by Bill Miller, Junior Class presi- 
dent, to fill a temporary vacancy 
created when Gerald Shultz, elect- 
ed to the Congress last April, did 
not return to the college this se- 
mester. His successor will be 
elected by the men day students of 
the Junior Class within the next 
week. Mr. Flocken will fill the 
post until a new representative is 

Among other business trans- 
acted, the MDSC decided on a new

in the MDSC Headquarters, Room 
210, Washington Hall, between 
the hours of 2 and 4 on Monday, 
Wednesday, and Friday after- 
noons. A deposit of ten cents will 
be made for each ball taken out; 
the deposit will be refunded when 
the ball, broken or whole, is re- 
turned to the office. 

ber of the board of Trustees of 
LVC, who will present the degree 
to Dr. Stine. 

Dr. Stine was born in Norwich, 
Conn., on October 18, 1882. He 
received his A.B. degree from Get- 
tysburg College in 1901, his B.S. 
in 1903, M.A. in 1904, M.S. in 
1905. Gettysburg also presented 
him with his Sc. D. in 1926. 

In 1904, Dr. Stine was made 
professor of Chemistry at the 
Maryland College for Women. He 
joined the staff of E. I. DuPont 
DeNemours and Co. in 1907. He 
rose in authority through the years 
and has been director of the Chem- 
istry department of the Eastern 
Lab of the company since 1930. 
He holds membership in Phi Beta 
Kappa, Gamma Alpha, Tau Beta 
Pi, Princeton Engineering Associ- 
ation, and the Chemical Club of 
Johns Hopkins University. 

Dr. Stine has done notable work 
in the sciences. He has been the 
developer of numerous processes 
of products in connection with 
high explosives, propellent pow- 
der, dyes, artificial leather, var- 
nish, paints and other inorganic 
and organic chemical processes 
and products. 

In recognition of this work, Dr. 
Stine has received degrees from 
Johns Hopkins University, Temple 
University, and Cumberland Uni- 

His degree from Lebanon Val- 
ley College will mark another mile- 
stone in his notable life. In view 
of this, Dr. Lynch has issued an 
invitation to all students and fac- 
ulty members to attend the exer- 
cises next Tuesday afternoon. 

Psych Wizards Initiate

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 13, 194|_ a 

Up, Up And Away 

The Student-Faculty Council met in the first real session of the 
year last Tuesday afternoon. If the first meeting is any indication of 
what the SFC is going to do this year on campus, the student body 
of LVC will at last have a governing organization of which it can be 
proud. Ray Kline, this year's president, opened the meeting with this 
remark: "The Student-Faculty Council should be regarded as the top- 
notch student organization on campus . . . student government has 
started off well at LVC this year . . . The constitution must be 
changed . . .". All of these remarks have a lot of honest conviction 
behind them. The Student-Faculty Council has been for the last few 
years one of the most innane things on this campus. It has never func- 
tioned with any amount of real, practical authority. The constitution 
which was put into effect the year before last has no teeth. It should 
be changed. 

There is no reason to think that a student governing body should 
have so much authority that it becomes the final organ of student con- 
trol and policy. There is, however, justification for a governing body 
which works with the faculty in coordinating student regulations. 
Students tend to forget that this is a Student-FACULTY Council, giv- 
ing he faculty a very powerful voice in the activities of the SFC. The 
faculty are going to very careful in their evaluation of SFC actions in 
the future, which means that the members of SFC must take a great 
deal of care in all these revolutionary moves which are being planned. 

NSA Announces Purchase 
Card System Improvement 

Students will fight high prices 
this year with trim blue "Purchase 

A goal of 50,000 National Stu- 
dent Association PCS Cards in stu- 
dents' hands — bringing them dis- 
counts ranging from 5 to 25 per 
cent from merchants — is planned 
for the 1949-50 academic year. 

Heads of NSA Purchase Card 
System area committees are al- 
ready placing their orders with 
the national office and the cards 
will go on sale at individual cam- 
puses shortly, according to Rick 
Medalie, national purchase card 

Here is how PCS works: 

Students purchase cards from 
their campus NSA Committee for 
$1 — of which 70 cents goes into 
their student government general 
fund, 20 cents helps the NSA re- 
gion pay for student projects that 
are for a large number of cam- 
puses, and 10 cents aids in co- 
ordinating more than a million 
students through the national of- 
fices of NSA. 

The student takes his card to 
listed merchants who have agreed 
to give PSC members substantial 
reductions in prices. 

"Students buy for less and co- 
operating merchants greatly in- 
crease their revenue — making up 
for reduced prices," Medalie ex- 

Now in operation for two years, 
PCS sold 12,000 cards last year, 
benefiting students on the follow- 
ing campuses in Pennsylvania: 
Beaver, LaSalle, St. Josephs, 
Swarthmore, Rittenhouse, Bryn 
Mawr, Temple University, Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania, Chestnut 
Hill, Lehigh University, Penn

Last Spring a campaign was 
conducted on campus in order to 
raise funds for the purpose of per- 
mitting a displaced person to at- 
tend college here. A sum of six 
hundred dollars was obtained. 

It was revealed at chapel ser- 
vices Tuesday and Wednesday, Oc- 
tober 4 and 5, that through the 
summer the administration sought 
a student. It was further revealed 
that a Russian student was recom- 
mended. He was rejected for rea- 
sons that are not entirely clear. 

This writer has heard not a 
small amount of criticism. Per- 
haps the criticism is unjustified. 
Nevertheless, I believe, since for 
the most part these funds were de- 
rived from student contributions, 
they deserve to have the facts 
made known to them.

Little Isolated Lebanon 



Living in a small community has many advantages that the 1 
city cannot offer, but the most noticeable disadvantage of small ci 
life is cultural isolation. Since Lebanon County is rather distant fro 
the big city areas its residents have limited opportunities to witu* 
stage plays, operas, concerts, symphonies, and many outstanding t 
tion pictures of foreign vintage. 

In the musical field a good sample of culture is offered our re 
dents by the programs of the Community Concert Association. Evi 
now and then Hershey brings us a worthy stage show, but these i 
few and far between. The possibility of attracting topnotch stage pU 
to Lebanon County— for at least a one-night stand — ought to be tb 
oughly investigated by all groups interested in fostering an appr< 
ation of the arts. If approached on the same basis as the Commui 
Concert scheme it would offer substantial chances of financial succ« 
The Optimist Club of Lebanon is currently attempting to bring plays 
Lebanon on the subscription basis, but unfortunately their selectiofl 
plays leaves much to be desired. 

It is in the field of motion pictures of foreign production tl 
Lebanon County is badly by-passed. The movie ads I see when read! 
the Sunday edition of the New York Times — a reading habit inheri' 
from the Political Science 10 course under Prof. Laughlin seve 
years ago — I realize what my residence compels me to miss For

Our theatre owners are businessmen who try to obtain films tl 
please the biggest audience and their cash registers at the sa 
time. Most foreign films do not find favor with Lebanon Colli 
audiences who normally go for Gene Autry, Betty Grable and hapl 
ending melodramas. If culture and cash happen to mix by accid' 
then Lebanon shows a foreign film. 

Why doesn't some organization (or several) try to arrange 
schedule of such outstanding films on a subscription basis in Lebal 
County? I believe there are enough people interested in the idea 
subscribe to one-night showings of these great film classics, 0» 
the financial risk is removed any theatre owner will be quick to of

LV Hockey Team Scores 
First Win Over G-Burg 

The Lebanon Valley hockey 
team opened its season last Satur- 
day by defeating the Gettysburg 
Bullettes with a 5-2 score. It is 
hoped that this victory will usher 
in another successful season for 
the Valley hockeyists. 

The contest began at 10:30 on 
the Gettysburg field. Shortly after 
the opening whistle, the home 
team began the scoring by chalk- 
ing up one goal. Undaunted, the 
Blue and White lassies countered 
as Ruthie Kramer accounted for 
the first L. V. tally. A fact of in- 
terest is that Ruthie has scored 
the opening goal of each season 
for Lebanon Valley for the past 
four years. Play was resumed 
with the Dutch girls on the offen- 
sive. Another strong drive down 
the field resulted in the second 
Valley goal which Ruthie also 
scored. During the first half most 
of the play was with Gettysburg 
on the defensive. Before the half 
ended Helen MacFarland made the 
score 3-1 with Valley in the lead. 

Catching their second wind, the 
Gettysburg hockeyists opened the 
iecond half by accounting for 
their second and last goal of the 
game. Again the Blue and White 
girls took the offensive. Betts 
Slifer raised the L. V. score to 
four points. Later, 'Mac" put the 
fifth tally score across the goal 
line. The game ended with the 
Dutch girls on the long end of a 
5-2 score.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 13, 19' 





There is an overwhelming feeling in this corner that Lebanon 
Valley football is slowing getting nowhere fast. Its happened every 
year now since '46. That year it was a 2-0 defeat by Dickinson. In 
'47 it was a 41-0 slaughter by F. & M. In '48 it was a 19-13 pasting 
by Albright. Now here was are in '49 and the Dutchmen have con- 
trived once again to slip into that well-worn groove of taking it on 
the chin from an equal or inferior opponent. This time, Western 
Maryland, 39-7. 

Last Saturday's game with Western Maryland prompted this col- 
umn. We didn't like what we saw or heard during and after the game. 

Western Maryland was our first home game of the season 
and we drew a crowd, if that's the word for it, of 2,00 0. And this was 
an afternoon when Lebanon High wasn't playing. This was college 
football at the give-away price of 8 cents — and we get 2,0 00. But the 
sad part of it is how many of the people who witnessed the game will 
come back to see us play again? 

When the game was finally over the "crowd" filed out of the 
stadium muttering, "Lebanon High plays better football, at least they 
try." And, "Did you ever see such ball playing?" Little wonder 
that even the proudest L. V. rooters were stilled before the game was 
half over. In explaining defeat to their friends, all Valleyites could 
do was shrug their shoulders and comment, "Oh well . . ." You've 
heard the rest. 

Such cynical comments puts a bitter bite on our feelings, but it's 
getting to be a habit. Each year is going to be "it." We're gonna' go 
places. But blooie, what happens — 0-2, 0-41, 13-19, 7-39. 

We like to win, who doesn't? However, we don't mind losing to 
a better team, as long as it can be done gracefully. But when you get 
it square between the eyes at least once a year by an equal or 
inferior, then it's time to do something about it. 

Now that Western Maryland has beaten us by 32 points, the 
students make stinging remarks about the team, coaches, and players 
alike. Team morale is low, and the attitude of everyone concerned is 
far from healthy. Must this business persist year in and year out? 

Far be it from this department to claim any rating as a football 
expert, but one doesn't need to be an expert to see that Lebanon Val- 
ley football is stagnant. We don't play a suicide schedule, but we still 
can't compile an outstanding record. There has never been, since 
we've been around Annville, any vast enthusiasm toward Valley foot- 
ball, and at the rate things are going, it's going to be a long time 
before it ever arrives. 

We try awfully hard to be a fair minded follower of Valley 
sports. We've never hit anyone intentionally with our typewriter and 
try our best to sing the praises of the individual heroics in our weekly 
comments of the sports scene as we see it. But there are times, such 
as these, when such is almost impossible. Riled-up emotions have 
played a part in a few lines appearing in these columns, but we don't 
think we've ever unjustly criticized anyone. That still stands. 

We like Lebanon Valley football. We like Lebanon Valley foot- 
ball players and consider it a privilege to cover their games each year. 
We would like to see Lebanon Valley hold her own with small colleges 
in this area, or anywhere else for that matter. We hate as bad as the 
next fellow to lose ball games, especially to equal or inferior oppo- 
nents. It hurts us deeply, and it's about time someone comes up with 
a cure. 


Western Maryland had a good team, but so (did, do, will) we. 
In Hank Corrado and Marty Tullai they possessed a pair of hard run- 
ners . . . Particularly impressive was their ball handling magic . . . 
The backs kept the ball well hidden and worked wonders on passes 
reverses, spinners, and hand-offs . . . They could handle the ball slicker 
than a guy passing crib notes in a History exam . . . 

It started out like a good game, but things went from bad to 
worse when L.V.'s pass defense passed out . . . DiJohnson, with some 
blocking, ran well in the first period . . . Walt Shonosky made some fine 
tackles backing up the line . . . Bob Bowman reeled off several nice 
runs . . . Walt Gage kept his P.A.T. streak intact . . . 

Fred Sample to Bob Fischer looked slightly less than terrific on 
short passes . . . But Sample's long tosses boomeranged . . . Shelly 
sparkled once or twice . . . Glenn Thomas, frosh end who wasn't even 
listed in the program, set up L. V.'s T.D. with a bit of spectacular pass 
catching ... Joe Oxley passed beautifully to Brother Barret for the 
lone Valley tally with four minutes remaining. 

The hour, however, was far too late. 

Hank DiJohnson, Fred Sample and Dale Shellenberger seem tc 
having a little trouble. Place: last Saturday at the W.M. gt 
Need we say more? 

Western Maryland Eleven Terrorizes 
Andy Kerr's Flying Dutchmen, 39-7 

Not many Western Maryland 
students followed their football 
team to Lebanon Stadium on Sat- 
urday afternoon, but those who 
did were richly rewarded as they 
watched their Green Terrors have 
themselves a field day by humb- 
ling a somewhat sluggish Lebanon 
Valley grid squad 39-7 before an 
estimated 2,000 spectators. The 
Marylanders were not an over- 
whelming powerhouse as the score 
might seem to indicate, but cap- 
italized on the lackadaisical play 
of the Flying Dutchmen to score 
six touchdowns. At the outset of 
the contest the Blue and White 
boomed for three consecutive first 
downs and it looked as if it was 
going to be strictly LVC. 

The offense of the Kerrmen 
then bogged down and the play of 
the Dutchmen took on the form it 
had at Westminster, Md., last year 
when the Terrors thwacked the 
Valleyites 13-0. The Green and 
Gold took charge of the situation 
and began its parade of reverses 
which was enough to baffle Hou- 
dini. The ball changed hands so 
much in the Terror backfield on 
certain occasions that one began 
to wonder if they were going to 
play it. Finally, when the even- 
tual victors managed themselves 
into scoring position they took to 
the air scoring five of their six 
TD's that way. 

The peculiar part of it all 
that the Valley pass defense wbi 
bottled up Mt. St. Mary's ozd 
attempts, just wasn't there. Tft 
the Terrors registered four! 
their six pointers on the same pi 
play to the left side of the It 
which was anything but trfc 
aerial work on the visitors' pi 
Generally speaking they took I 
vantage of the Blue and Whit 
porous defense. The victors' ; 
parently learned their lesson fr 
the aerial attack which troum 
them at Gettysburg and not ol 
proceeded to unleash a devast 
ing touchdown-by-air performan 
but also presented an alert s\ 
way defense that was on the 
ceiving end of a number of Dut< 
men forward passes. 

Outstanding visitor of the t 
was Martin Tullai who reeled 
a nice running game and 
scored two touchdowns. S* 
Fieldman crossed the goal 
twice and added an extra po> 
while Hank Norman and Ch 11 
Kobosko each tallied once v\ 
Hank Corrado kicking two <4 

Two brothers, from L o 1 
Branch, New Jersey, salvaged so 
pride for the Flying Dutchmen 
Joe Oxley passed to Brother B 
ret for the Valley's lone to«' 
down in the last quarter. "W

This year's annual Homecoming Day to be held this Saturday, 
October 22, will be highlighted by the ground-breaking ceremonies for 
the new Physical Education Building which will be held at ten o'clock

At First Yearly Meeting 

A special meeting of Kalo mem- 
bers and pledges was held Mon- 
day evening at 7:30 P. M., at 
which time 63 pledges were given 
instructions for the initiation. All 
Kalo pledges are to meet in Room 
5 of the Administration Building 
this evening at 7:00 P. M. Presi- 
dent Moller announced that a large 
number of the pledges are upper- 
classmen. The initiation committee 
was named by the president. Ken 
Grimm was appointed chairman, 
assisted by Dick Schiemer, John 
Stamato, Val Sica, Bob Geyer, Ed 
Tesnar, Joe Shemeta, Bob Schref- 
fler, and Bob Mergich. 

President Moller extended his 
gratitude to all participants for the 
successful "Rush-week" activities. 


Lecture Series Arran 
By Life Work Recruits 

The first in a series of lectures 
sponsored by the Life Work Re- 
cruits will be held this evening 
with Rev. Marlin Seider, '47, de- 
livering the initial address. 

Edgar Wert, president of the 
LWC, announced that this will be- 
gin a series of lectures being 
planned by the Christian campus 
workers which will pertain to vari- 
ous phases of religious emphasis. 

Rev. Seiders, Evangelical United 
Brethren minister now serving the 
Grantville charge of the East 
Pennsylvania conference, will 
speak on the theme, "Rural Min- 
istry." A graduate of Lebanon 
Valley, he is at present completing 
his seminary work at Reading 
Seminary, Reading, Pa. 

The meeting will be held in 
Room 212 at 7 P. M., this evening. 
The time was set for this hour so 
it would not interfere with the 
initiations of any society pledgees 
who might wish to attend. 

An invitation to attend this in- 
itial lecture is extended to every 
student by the Life Work Recruits. 

ley College administrative officials 
to provide the funds necessary for 
the building. 

Alumni from all parts of the 
State and country will be present 
for the Homecoming celebration. 

Plans for the entire day have 
been completed and announced by 
the various participating organiza- 
tions. The Day will begin at nine 
in the morning with the tradition- 
al tug of war between the Frosh 
and the Sophomores. So far, there 
has been an apparent reluctance 
on the part of Sophomores to take 
part in this event, since John Sta- 
mato, who is in charge of it, has 
announced that an insufficient 
number of Sophomores have ap- 
plied for the honor of dragging 
the frosh into the Quittie. He has 
asked for ten volunteers to insure 
Sophomore superiority and success 
for the event. The groundbreaking 
ceremonies will be next on the 
agenda, taking place at ten 
o'clock. Following this, there will 
be a meeting of the board of 
Trustees and a luncheon for those 
members of the Board who attend 
this meeting. 

In the afternoon, the Lebanon 
Valley Flying Dutchmen will meet 
the football team from Moravian 
College at the Lebanon High 
School Stadium. The kickoff will 
be at two o'clock. 

At seven o'clock that evening, 
the Wig and Buckle Club will pre- 
sent two one act plays, THE DEAR 
Engle Hall. There will be no ad- 
mission to these plays, and the 
Club has invited all persons on 
the campus at that time to attend. 

Following the plays in Engle 
Hall, there will be a dance in the 
Annville High School Gym spon- 
sored by the "L" Club of LVC. 
The admission for this dance is 
$1.50 per couple and .75 cents 
for stags. This dance will be the 
final event of the day. 

All students invited to attend 
Ground-breaking ceremonies —

What Hangs Over? 

Every college newspaper has its share of difficulties. La Vie is 
no exception to the rule. At the moment the biggest problem is the 
financial status of the paper. Many students have been wondering why 
the paper is not larger in size and content, how many issues there will 
be this year, and whether the editors plan to change the paper in any 
way. The purpose of this editorial will be to try to answer some of 
these questions. 

Every year La Vie receives from the administration the sum of 
two dollars per student to cover the printing costs. This money is 
called a two semester subscription. This year the money amounts to 
fourteen hundred and sixty four dollars. There is no other money 
forthcoming from the administration. The average cost of printing one 
issue of the paper is seventy dollars. This year the schedule called for 
twenty-seven issues. Therefore, the total cost of printing La Vie 
should amount to eighteen hundred and ninety dollars. As you can see, 
this sum is very much larger than that received from the students as 
subscription. In addition to the regular editions of the paper, La Vie 
has for several years printed a Green Blotter supplement at Christ- 
mas. This tradition is not to be broken, even thought the cost for it is 
about two hundred dollars. Taking all of these costs and adding them 
gives twenty-one hundred dollars as the resulting figure. That means 
that La Vie is about six hundred dollars short of the amount needed 
to run the paper efficiently, in fact to print the paper often enough so 
that it is still a weekly. 

There are a number of ways to solve this problem. One of them is 
an advertising campaign. Realizing this, the editors have launched a 
campaign in the hopes that enough money will be raised from it to 
enable them to print the full schedule of editions. So far, the cam- 
paign has met with only moderate success. (If it had proved at all 
successful, the editors had planned to print a six-page paper beginning 
the first week in November. This larger La Vie would have provided 
more news and features for the students, and would have been un- 
doubtedly a better paper.) 

The second means of solving this problem would have been appeal 
to alumni for subscriptions. This would have resulted in far too great 
a load on an already overworked staff, and was therefore rejected. 

Therefore, it all boils down to this: Do you, the students of Leb- 
anon Valley College, want a weekly paper, and are you willing to sup- 
port it? This editorial is now a frank plea for money. There is no 
reason to run to the administration for funds. This is a student publi- 
cation, and means that the students must get behind it in every way. 
It also means that if you want a paper worthy of the school and stu- 
dents, you must help it. The editors would like to see anyone who is 
interested in helping La Vie out of this financial crisis. There will be 
a meeting of the staff next Thursday evening. Anyone who has any 
concrete plan should appear at that meeting. The editors will welcome 
anyone — faculty or students.

When he asked the question, 
the Tutor and I were sitting on a 
stone seat in the tiny green rec- 
tangle at the rear of the Univer- 
sity Church of St. Mary the Vir- 
gin. On the other side of that 
ancient edifice the traffic of Ox- 
ford's High Street raced and 
roared but here in this "Yard" its 
sounds were blended together into 
a steady hum. 

Through the open church door 
I could see the spot where Arch- 
bishop Cranmer had been tried, 
just before he was lead away to be 
burned at the stake in the days of 

Mary Tudor. Across that aisle on 
the left Queen Elizabeth had sat 
while the Chancellor of the Uni- 
versity read her a "fine address in 
scholarly Latin." She had an- 
swered him, according to reports, 
"in equally scholarly Greek." 
From that pulpit Keble and New- 
man had preached the sermons 
that led to the formation of the 
Oxford Movement. At the moment, 
just inside the door an American 
male voice was stridently demand

name anyone in his right mind 
would name a college Brasenose. 
The verger told him. 

The bells in St. Mary's tower 
chimed the half-hour-thirty min- 
utes until tea-time. From that 
same tower in the fourteenth cen- 
tury the bells had summoned Ox-

battles that raged between "town

The Tutor repeated his ques-

Middle Ages and looked at him. 
Thin, shabby, scholarly, deeply in 
earnest — somehow in his frayed 
gown he belonged on that bench. 
After all, he was an Eden. Back 
of him stretched four generations 
of men who had had a "proper 
sense of responsibility for their 
government." Was the day far 
spent for him and his kind? Did

Day Hop Room Change 

The MDSC and the College Ad- 
ministration, in an effort to se- 
cure the maximum usefulness of 
the men day students' room in 
Washington Hall, have closed the 
room to through traffic to and 
from classes. Signs directing class- 
es through the central entrance 
of the building have been placed 
outside Washington Hall and at 
the side entrance of the day stu- 
dent room. The furniture of the 
day rom has for the same reason 
been rearranged, eliminating the 
former wide aisle through to the 
north door. The new arrangement, 
if honored by the students, will 
result in a cleaner, quieter, more 
serviceable day student room. All 
students are, therefore, earnestly 
requested to use the proper exits.

Wig And Buckle Announce 
Near Future Production 
At First Yearly Meetings 

The first meeting of LVC's dra- 
matic group, the Wig and Buckle 
Club, was held several weeks ago. 
A large number of veteran thes- 
pians along with several newcom- 
ers were on hand for the opening 
session. President Jim Murray 
presided at the meeting. It was 
pointed out by several members 
that the present constitution of 
the club was wholly inadequate 
and after much debate the Presi- 
dent stated that the Executive 
Council would meet for the pur- 
pose of Constitutional revision. 

Jeanne Hull made a report con- 
cerning the one act plays suitable 
for production for the Homecom- 
ing Day program. The club select- 
ed two plays, GOOD NEIGHBORS 
and PUPPETS, for production. 
However, it was later found that 
GOOD NEIGHBORS was not avail- 
able for production and another 

was substituted. 

Elizabeth Beittel and Barbara 
Metzger were appointed to act as 
co-directors for THE DEAR DE- 
PARTED and Jeanne Hull and 
Lois Adams in the same capacity 

The tryouts for the plays were 
held last week and the following 
people were selected for roles: 
Heck, Anthony Geidt, Nancy Pau- 
us, Charles Kagey, Jane Lutz, Bob 
Wisher; for PUPPETS, Bob Eig- 
enbrode, and almost everyone else 
available for the parts of the pup- 
pets. This last move was necessi- 
tated by the large cast of PUP- 
PETS. The Homecoming play 
program will begin at seven 
o'clock on the evening of October 

The next meeting of the Wig 
and Buckle Club will be held on 
November 1, at which time plans 
for the first major production will 
oe discussed. 


The Conserv Formal will be held 
Saturday, December 3, at the

Religious Emphasis Week To Feature 
Speech, Seminar, And Meditation 

The fifth annual Lebanon Valley Religious Emphasis Week will 
begin Monday, Oct. 24th and continue through the 26th. The week will 
be opened on the 24th at 7:00 P. M., in Engle Hall when the keynote 
address will be presented by Dr. George D. Kelsey, Associate Director

Dr. Kelsey will be the only 
speaker. He is well versed on cur- 
rent economic affairs and his chap- 
el addresses will be around the 
theme of "The Christian View of 
Man in the Economic Order." 

Besides the daily chapel ser- 

vices, the usual seminars for Pro- 
testant, Catholic, and Jewish 
faiths have been planned, along 
with a day-student luncheon, fac- 
ulty luncheon, classroom lectures, 
interviews, meditation periods, 
and an organized house meeting. 

Religious Emphasis Week will 
close on Wednesday evening, the 
2 6th, at 7:30 in Engle Hall when 
Dr. Kelsey will deliver the final 
address, "The Christian View of 
Man in the Social Order." 



La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 20, W 



year football record compiled by a modern Valley football team. U 
member that the next time you start deriding L. V. football. 
In conclusion: 

Let's not underate our opponents. Let's not let wishful thinki 
get the best of our reasoning. LET'S curb our criticism in the futu, 
Think it over. 



Lebanon Valley football has been derided here as "stagnant" 
and "going nowhere fast." But let's be fair about it. There are two 
sides to every argument and it's this bureau belief that both should be 
presented in this column. So here goes. 

First, let's be quick to say that this column isn't written as an 
apology or cover-up to anyone. There is no room here for double-talk. 
The following is written without fear or favor. It is presented simply 
because we think every reader will benefit by it. Far too many people 
don't realize the L. V. football set-up and what goes into building a 
Lebanon Valley football team. 

Since our column of last week we have had a lengthy and en- 
lighting chat with Coach Andy Kerr. Andy set us straight on the 
L. V. football situation and what he had to say would be good, very 
good, for everyone to digest, ourselves included. 

Andy brought out three points which greatly effect the status 
of L. V. football. In the evaluation of our team consider the following: 

Point number one — Is Lebanon Valley playing teams that are 
operating on the same basis as we are? That is, do they play fresh- 
men? Do they have spring training? 

Point number two — As L. V. students are many of our criticisms 
of the team based on wishful thinking? 

Point number three — Does L. V. have any organized alumni or- 
ganization to channel football material for Valley teams? 

1. We play three teams that do not play freshmen — Gettysburg, 
Western Maryland and Scranton. These same three teams have 
spring training. In other words, these teams operate on a major basis. 
We do not. Here's where the difference comes in. 

A team that doesn't play freshmen has these advantages. They 
have a freshmen team which means that all of the frosh are gaining 
valuable seasoning in actual game competition while playing on the 
freshmen team. They play as a unit and get to play in a regular game 
each week. 

Here at L. V. a few frosh are lucky or good enough to make the 
varsity, while the rest of them get bench blisters. The only action they 
see is during mid-week scrimmages when they act as cannon-fodder for 
the varsity. This isn't exactly the best way to learn the finer points of 
the game. 

Spring training serves as a test period, so to speak. The coaches 
can work out an offensive and defensive pattern and see how well each 
player can adapt himself to certain styles of play. Then when fall 
practice begins all of the groundwork is out of the way. 

Here at L. V. the team starts from the ground up with the begin- 
ning of fall practice. 

2. Are we sure that many of our criticisms of the team aren't based 
on wishful thinking? You sure? Wishful thinking works this way. 

Take this year as a for instance. We, as L. V. students, want to 
beat Gettysburg and Western Maryland in the worst way. In fact, so 
much so that we think we should. So right there we have built the 
team up in our minds. Their "Our boys," we live with them and we're 
constantly extoling their playing feats.- And so it goes. All we 
think of is win, win, win and all the while we're indulging in a bit of 
wishful thinking. 

Then, socko, when we do get beat the cry goes up, "What the heck 
is the matter with L. V.?" Wishful thinking has played a part in you 
criticism. Think it over. 

3. Some of the colleges that we play have extensive alumni set- 
ups — recruiting organizations to channel high school football talent to 
their college. Coaches, business men, former athletes, et. al., with a 
deep interest in their college athletics have banded together into a 
workable organization to act as "scouts" for their college. So when 
it comes to grabbing football talent these schools have the edge on 
the Valley. We have no such organization. 

However, despite these aforementioned points, let's look at the 
record. For convenience sake we'll take team totals since the advent 
of Kerr in '47. 

Including the Western Maryland game of two Saturdays' ago, 
L. V. has won 11, lost 7, and tied 2. 

Against teams operating on a major basis — spring training, fresh- 
men team, organized alumni, we have won 1 (Scranton, 13-7 in '47), 
tied 1 (Temple, 7-7 in '48), and lost 5. 

Against teams operating on the same basis as ourselves, we have 
lost 2 (Juniata, 6-20 in '47; Albright, 13-19 in '48), tied 1 (P. M. C, 
0-0 in '47) and won 10. Which, you are forced to admit, is a pretty 
clean cut success as modern football records go. 

This gives Lebanon Valley an overall total of 11 victories, 7 losses, 
and 2 ties in 20 games. This, incidentally, is the best consecutive three 

Dutchgirls Rally At 
Half For 3-2 Victory 

The Lebanon Valley hockey 
team continued its winning streak 
last Saturday morning by defeat- 
ing the Albright hockey eleven in 
a bitterly fought contest on the 
Reading field. Our lassies emerged 
on the long end of a 3-2 score. 

Albright scored the first goal of 
the game shortly after the open- 
ing whistle. During the entire first 
half, the Albright girls were the 
aggressors. However, no more 
points were accounted for by 
either team. 

The Valley hockeyites began 
the second half with a new fight- 
ing spirit. A Blue and White 
drive resulted in "Ruthie" Kra- 
mer, left inner, scoring the first 
L. V. talley. Play was again re- 
sumed. A strong defense was led 
by Ruth Ann Brown, sturdy left 
fullback, and Jeanne Hutchinson, 
our fightin' center halfback. With 
Lebanon Valley continuing on the 
offensive, "Mickey" Begg, speedy 
right wing, was able to put the 
Dutchgirls in the lead 2-1. A quick 
rebound by the Albright eleven 
caught our girls off guard and 
evened the score. 

The determined L. V. team again 
attacked the Albright goal. 
"Betts" Slifer, center forward, ac- 
counted for the winning goal. Both 
teams were fighting hard as the 
game ended with the Dutchgirls in 
the lead 3-2. 

The return home was celebrated 
by a visit to "Hot Dog" Frank's, 
where, as another example of his 
school spirit, Frank treated the 
victorious players. Three cheers 
for "Hot Dog" whose promise of 
a treat spurred us on to win."

Men's Senate Installs 
Dorm Improvements 

Under the leadership of Presi- 
dent John Charles Smith, the re- 
vitalized Men's Senate has shown 
renewed life this year in adminis- 
tering to the needs of all dorm 
men. The Senate has also acted 
on several occasions in the hand- 
ling of discipline when needed. 

Having already held several 
meetings, the Senate has voted to 
set aside the second Tuesday of 
each month for its regular month- 
ly meeting. 

Several dorm improvements 
have been undertaken by the Sen- 
ate. The phone booth is being dec- 
orated with a desk, lamp, rug, and 
curtains. This is being done in or- 
der to better accommodate the 
freshmen who have been assigned 
to phone duty each night except 
Saturday, from 7 to 11 P. M. When 
the room becomes furnished it 
can also be used as a reception 
room for any guests the men may 
wish to bring to the dorm. 

The Senate has also taken ac- 
tion to secure two new bulletin 
boards for the dorm. They have 
evoked several minor penalties, 
and have taken care of many 
changes for which men in the 
dorm have expressed a desire. 

Senate officers are: President, 
John C. Smith; Vice President, 
Bob Hess; Secretary, Pat Esposi- 
to. Other members are: Seniors^ 
Walt Gage, Bob Geyer, Bill Fish- 
er; Juniors, Norm Lukens and 
Bill Miller; Sophomores, Fred 
Sample and George Cardone. 

Fehr Unanimous Choice 
For Role Of Regional 
Director Of 1950 ICG 

Alex Fehr, an LVC Senior, and 
Political Science major, was un- 
animously chosen Regional Direc- 
tor of the South Central district of 
the Intercollegiate Conference on 
Government at the first Executive 
Committee meeting of the 1950 
ICG held at the Penn-Harris Hotel 
in Harrisburg. The meeting, held 
this past Sunday, was attended by 
Raymond Kline, chairman of the 
LV student delegation, Robert 
Moller, president of the Political 
Science Club, and Professor Maud 
P. Laughlin, adviser to the Poli- 
tical Science Club. 

Formerly, the Regional Direc- 
tor was chosen by Miss Genevieve 
Blatt, executive director of the 
ICG. This year, however, the pro- 
cedure was changed so that col- 
leges might have this privilege. 
Representatives of the South-Cen- 
tral District, which consists of 
twelve colleges in this area of the 
state, unanimously chose Mr. Fehr, 
who held the position last year. 
His duties will be twofold: to stim- 
ulate student interest in the ICG, 
and to contact the member col- 
leges and plan regional meetings. 

The Executive Committee was 
also concerned with the proced- 
ures to be employed at the an- 
nual Conference which will ibe 
held in Harrisburg April 13-16 
195 0. The Conference will take the 
form of a State Constitutional 
Convention. Traditionally, the 
ICG assumes the characteristics of 
various political bodies, such as 
State Assemblies, Political Con- 
ventions, and U. S. Congresses. 

Kalo Initiates 47; 
One Of Largest Groups 

Last Thursday night in the old 
gym of the Ad building, Kalo, fol- 
lowing their custom, held an an- 
nual initiation. At this initiation 
47 pledges were taken into the 
organization. To follow this in- 
formal initiation there will be a 
formal one to be held on Thurs- 
day, November 3, at 7:30 P.M. in 
Kalo Hall. It is important that all 
pledges to Kalo be present at this 
meeting. Dues may also be paid 
at this time to John C. Smith, Jr. 
All dues must be paid on or before 
Saturday, November 5. 

On Friday evening a dance was 
held by the joint societies Kalo 
and Delphian in Kalo Hall. Here 
the many who attended danced to 
records or munched pretzel sticks 
and drank cokes. The co-chair- 
mans were Betts Slifer and Dave 
Dundore who were assisted by 
Ruthie Kramer, Lois Perry, Bob 
Geyer, and Stanley Billheimer. 

Hallow's Eve Masque, 
Revised Constitution 
Highlighted BySFC 

The Student-Faculty C' incil of 
LVC will be the sponsor of a mas- 
querade party this Saturday night. 
The party will take place in the 
Annville High School gym, and 
will begin at 8:30 p. m. Norman 
Bucher has been made General 
Chairman of the party. Last Tues- 
day, Raymond Kline, president of 
the SFC, appointed the following 
committees to assist Bucher in the 
job. John Nilan was made chair- 
man of the publicity committee 
and Jeanne Bozarth, Donald 
Paine, and Al Moriconi will work 
on his committee. Nancy Bright is 
in charge of the program for the 
party, and will be aided by Dave 
Wallace and Don Steinberg. Jan 
Eppley and Bunni Geller will be 
in charge of the refreshments, and 
Ethel Mae Beam, along with Dave 
Bomgardner, Dale Snyder, Bob 
Hess, Lee Alsberge, and Pat 
Espotito will decorate the gym 
according to the Hallowe'en 

Revises Constitution 
The Student - Faculty Council 
has also revised its constitution. 
At the last meeting, the members 
of the SFC voted to accept the re- 
visions proposed by the constitu- 
tion committee, which was headed 
by David Wallace. One of the 
points which caused the greatest 
controversy was under the general 
heading of "Powers." This section 
of the constitution gave the SFC 
the authority to make recommen- 
dations to the faculty concerning 
the recognition of new campus or- 
ganization. It also gave the SFC 
power to recommend that defunct 
or improperly run organizations be 
disbanded. This section was ap- 
proved after the following pro- 
cedure was added to it: 

1. A written complaint shall be 
presented to the president of the 
SFC by any member of the student 
body. 2. If upon reading of the 
complaint before the SFC a ma- 
jority of the members shall con- 
sider the complaint justified, a 
committee of review shall be ap- 
pointed by the president. 3. The 
Committee shall investigate the 
complaint and report thereon to 
the SFC at the next regular meet- 
ing. 4. Upon the report of the com- 
mittee the SFC, by a two-thirds 
vote, shall make the recommenda- 
tion to the faculty. 

With the acceptance of this and 
other minor revisions to the con- 
stitution, the SFC approved the 
entire set of rules. This marks the 
second time in three years that 
the SFC will operate under a 
markedly changed constitution. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 27, ]\ Q > 

Sans Regret . . . 

After the editorial which cried the blues about the lack of funds, 
a lot of people are going to wonder how the editors of La "Vie were 
able to print this eight page paper this week. Well, the answer is a 
simple one. This large paper is here to show you what can be done 
when money worries have disappeared. The editors are kind of proud 
of this issue. The terrific reception given to Homecoming Day, and 
the extra importance of this year's observance deserved as much space 
as possible. There are a lot of gibes about *he new building, but 
they are all in jest. In reality, there is not a person on campus Who 
is not proud of the achievements of the administration and the 
success of the building program. In fact, everyone is referring to the 
gym in the Ad building as the "old Gym" already. A good sign. 

How To Be A Character 
And Influence Professors 


Rules, that's all, a few simple rules. Here's an example to get the 
general idea: 

Be prepared to split a side when a professor grins and says "That 
reminds me of the twin-bed joke . . ." From that moment on prepare 
yourself for a hearty belly-laugh (as a warmup you might remove a 
loafer and beg the stimulation of 

a neighbor's finger). At the same 
time, it is very important that you 
watch the professor's face closely 
because sometimes a facial expres- 
sion will give a clue as to the 
joke's point of termination. When 
he begin to guffaw like Disney's 
Goofy with the hiccups, that is 
your cue to rock to-and-fro in your 
seat, slap your knees ostenstati- 
ous and ha-ha with sincerity. 
Never, but never raise your hand 
and say, "That's like the one I 
heard in which . . ." There's al- 
ways a slight chance that you may 
top it. 

Then there's the question of 
class attendance — be consistent. 
That is, if you're late the first class 
meeting of the week, try your best 
to be late the remaining class per- 
iods. The enocomy-minded student 
will accent his tardiness by slam- 
ming the door and muttering aud- 
ibly, "Damn cross-ventilation!" 
As a personal touch you might 
spotlight your athletic prowess by 
drop-kicking a textbook a few 
yards in the direction of your seat. 
This announcement of late arrival 
saves a cut and is always good for 
a laugh. Assuming the class roars 
with laughter, be careful not to 
capitalize on your popularity. It 
may give the professor and inferi- 
ority complex. Instead, shrug your 
shoulders demurely and pick up 
your book, saying (in a Dogpatch 
drawl) "Shucks, you ought to see 
the distance I get with my little 
brother when he stoops over to tie 
his shoe-string." 

Sometimes a professor will in- 
advertantly embarass the tardy 
student with a clever little witti- 
cism. "Good afternoon, (if it's 
morning) Mr. Black, glad you 
could make it." Or else, "Good 
morning, (in the afternoon), Mr. 
Black. Did you oversleep?" The 
artless student will offer a wry 
sneer at this remark, but it's much 
smarter to blush freely, and, on 
the way to your seat, turn a couple 
of cartwheels of gleeful merri- 

The persistently late student of- 
times gets squelched with well- 
timed tauntness. Just as he settles

come, Mr. West Coast Commuter, 
was the Burlington Limited late 
again?" Instead of trying a re- 
tort, gulp down your pride with 
the breakfast coffee you've carried 
to class. 

Another rule: let the other 
fellow ask the questions the pro- 
fessor cannot answer even though 
this may limit your interrogations 
to the may-I-be-excused-to-get-a 
drink-of-water type. If you recite 
in class and a professor gives you 
that furowed brow expression 
with tongue-in-cheek connotations,

Gadzooks! Is This It? 


It was a dark day in 19 42. The wind howled fiercely about t: more 
cabin of one Christopher Columbus who had taken up his winter rer lym j 
dence in a quiet little valley known as the Bologna Gap. (Later to als0 
named Lebanon Valley.) Grouped about the fire was an assembla 00 ; ' 
of North American Indians garbed in their native costumes design^ 
by Chief Faith. (Grandfather of Jacques Fath, it is claimed.) Christ*. ?■ 
pher reached in his wallet and withdrew a handful of Spanish coii nu§ 
before devaluation worth two dollars. He spoke to the leader of tl 
tribe. c 

"Ugh ab ocoooh, achoo." Tom 

Those were the words that would some day change the entitheir 
history of the country. What Columbus had said was, in effect, tlt erS)

do not relate the tale we have discovered that the real reason for timer

would not finance their plans for the erection of a new gymnasium and J 
the mother-country. Thus we see the noble little group first steppiithror 
on Plymouth Rock, their feet encased in Spalding basketball shoi 
and gathering together to give a TEAM yell. The Mayflower Compa 
was written to put the plans on paper and the courageous settlers eal° a ds 
procured a job in the local Red-Skin Five and Ten in order to rai on th 
the money for the structure. But, alas, along came the Revolutiona a & es _

Hypnotism Theme Of Psych 
Club Meeting On Oct. 31 

Hypnotism will be the theme of 
discussion and demonstration 
when the Psychology Club meets 
on October 31, at 8:30 P.M. in 
Philo Hall. 

Mike Baker, a senior at Leba- 
non Valley, will be the hypnotic 
master of the evening. Mike has 
had a great deal of experience 
along this line. His work with 
volunteers from the student audi- 
ence should prove entertaining as 
well as valuable to all who attend. 

This is the first of a series of 
interesting programs which the 
Psychology Club has planned for 
the year. All those who are inter- 
ested are invited to attend. 

Pi Gamma Mu Members 
Win Unanimous Approval 

The Pennsylvania Nu Chapter, 
Pi Gamma Mu, of Lebanon Valley 
College, held its first organization- 
al meeting of the 1949-5 term on 
Tuesday, Oct. 11, at the college. 
President David Wallace was in 
charge of the meeting. 

Prof. Hilbert Lochner, Secre- 
tary-Treasurer of the Chapter, read 
the names of twenty-two college 
students and seven faculty and 
alumni members who were eligi- 
ble to join the honor society this 
year. Admission to the society for 
the students is based on a high 
scholastic attainment in the key 
social sciences of history, econom- 
ics, government, and sociology. 
The twenty-two students so hon- 
ored were recommended for ad- 
mission by Dr. F. K. Miller, Prof. 
Hilbert Lochner, Prof. Maud P. 
Laughlin, and Prof. Marvin Wolf- 
gang. By a unanimous vote all 
the recommendations were ap- 
proved by charter members pres- 
ent at the meeting. 

Alex J. Fehr, LVC delegate, gave 
a report of the Pi Gamma Mu na- 
tional convention which was held 
in Washington last June 17-18. 
His report stressed the important 
role played by LVC members in 
passing resolutions and in acti- 
vating the proceedings. In addi- 
tion to Fehr, LVC was represented 
by Robert Eigenbrode, Prof. Flor- 
ence Houtz, Prof. Lochner, 

A nominating committee headed 
by John Nilan drew up a slate of 
candidates for positions vacated by 
student graduates of last year, 
fhis report was approved by the 
members present and elections for 
those posts will be held on Tues- 
day, October 18. 

Additional reports included a 
financial report by Prof. Lochner, 
and a report on the schedule of 
programs by Alex Fehr, newly ap- 
pointed chairman of the Program 

Formal initiation of the new 
members and election of officers 
is scheduled for the next meeting 
to be held on Tuesday, Oct. 18, at 
7:30 P. M., in Philo Hall. 

Prof. Erickson Addresses 
Math Teachers Af Reading 

Professor Robt. L. Erickson ad- 
dressed the Berk's County Asso- 
ciation of Mathematics Teachers 
at Reading, Pennsylvania, last 
Thursday night, October 20th. The 
address followed an excellent din- 
ner which was served at Whitners. 
Professor Erickson spoke on the 
subject, "Intrigueing and novel 
methods of using arithmetic to 
understand algebra." In addition 
Professor Erickson presented the 
results of an examination given to 
168 entering Freshmen at Leb- 
anon Valley College, with sug- 
gestions for improved efficient and 
effective knowledge of algebra. 

Some 3 mathematics teachers 
throughout Berks County were in 
attendance. After the address, a 
large number of the group re- 
mained to ask questions especially 
concerning their own teaching

lets f^ll 

One of the highlights of Home- 
3US coming was the student-faculty 
dis- baseball game, known as "The 
Faculty^ Fatties vs. The Select 
Seniors." The Seniors won # 8-6, 
although the pitching form dis- 
played by Al Fehr, above, is no 
indication of their prowess. Ray 
^jKline, along with Dick Grimm, 
seems to be having a grand time. 
It must have been the last inning, 
when the Seniors were sure of vic- 
tory. Wi s h we had a picture of 
Coach" Dunmoyer out there on 
that mound. 

Clio initiates, like those in the 
Picture below, had a rough time 
ot it. Those fetching costumes 
went well with the picnic, but 
tnats about all. The weather 
was just right for those umbrellas, 
because the sun shone like mad 
all day. Who could keep their 
'"oughts on schoolwork with all 
'nose beautiful co-eds around? 
tv eryone, that's who. 

Our cameraman had some fun 
at the dance taking shots like the 
one above of the trumpet players. 
The editors of La Vie have to 
keep their eyes on him. He's be- 
ginning to act like a pro. 

The lovelies gathered together 
on the left are pledges for Del- 
phian. Like the girls who entered 
Clio last week, they had a lot of 
embarrassing moments all day

hockey team, is seen below giving 
the team a good pep talk. They 
must have taken her seriously, 
because they continued a winning 
streak by licking the pants off 
(pardon the expression) of the 
opposing team from Moravian 
Saturday morning, and what a 
licking. They won, 8-0.

""DiJohnson Runs 102 Yards 
In Moravian Slaughter 

S' The Moravian College gridder's 
came to Lebanon stadium on 
Saturday afternoon minus their 
helmets, but Coach Andy Kerr's 

1 Flying Dutchmen made sure the 
Greyhounds went back to Beth- 
lehem with their head gear, plus a 
34-13 spanking for their forget- 
fullness. It was Homecoming Day

Wirain, and later the blinding sun, 
i were treated to a unique spectacle

Moravian knocked the Dutch- 
men off their feet early in the con- 
test when Joe Gerencser of the 
eventually-vanquished, nabbed a 
forward pass originally intended 
for Bob Fischer and ran for a 
touchdown. Carl Case placekicked 
he extra point and Moravian led 
-0. LV quarterback, Fred Sample, 
rought the hometeam back into 
he tussle as he passed to "Hank" 
"i Johnson in the second period to 
ut the ball on the one foot line 
nd then rammed over for a score, 
issing the bonus tally, the Fly- 
ng Dutchmen trailed 7-6, but not 
or long. 

Driving upfield with twenty sec- 
nds remaining in the first half, 
Sample took to the air, and what 
followed was one of those "once- 
w-a-life-times"; as Sample's aerial 
was deflected by Jerry Makris and 
popped right into the arm's of 
tfob Fischer who cuddled it like a 
m» mother, for a touchdown. Walt 
T vn 6 booted th e extra point and 
^VG was out in front 13-7. On the

Dad's Day Plans Made 
Public By Bucher 

Once again the "dads" will be 
on campus — for Dad's Day, Nov. 
5, 1949. The YMCA, under the 
leadership of Norman Bucher, 
president, has been busily prepar- 
ing a program that will keep dad 
busy throughout the day. Prepara- 
tions have been in full swing for 
the past few weeks so that dad 
will feel like son when he arrives. 
An invitation has been extended 
to the dads of the dorm students 
as well as to a limited number of 
day students' fathers. 

Activities will start on Friday 
evening, Nov. 4, with a movie — 
"Mr. Deeds Goes to Town." This 
will be the first movie of the year 
sponsored by the Y's and is being 
presented for the entertainment of 
the dads as well as for all the col- 
lege students. 

Saturday afternoon Andy Kerr's 
"Flying Dutchmen" will play hosts 
to Lincoln University in the Leba- 
non High School stadium. This 
will be the first meeting of these 
two in football, and an interesting 
game should be in store for us. 
Prof. Rutledge and Bruce Wiser 
have agreed that the band will 
present their customary brand of 
talent — excellent. The theme will 
probably be based along lines of 
the "oldfashioned" life, with the 
added stipulation that if any "ex- 
tras" are needed, the freshmen 
will perform. 

In the evening the annual ban- 
quet will be served to the fathers 
and the sons in the dining room. 
There will be group singing fol- 
lowing the banquet at which time 
a chorus of Philo members will act 
as the leaders in the singing. 

To round out the day, Dr. 
Charles Mayser, retired coach at 
F. & M., has been seccured to 
speak for the occasion. Due to the 
nature of his speech, which in- 
cludes stunts of magic as well as 
material appropriate for after din- 
ner speeches, he will speak to the 
fathers and the sons in Engle Hall. 

This day will be a pleasant 
memory for dad, but it will als be 
an enjoyable weekend for those 
who stay on campus. 

the Valley intercepted one of those 
desperate Moravian passes and 
freshman Ray Dankowski passed 
to fellow yearling Glenn Thomas 
for the last TD of the day with 
Gage making good on the point at- 
tempt. The triumph marked the 
eighth win against two losses and 
a tie in the series with the 

Hockey Team Continues 
'49 Winning Streak 

Homecoming Day was victori- 
ous on all sides for all Lebanon 
Valleyites, past or present — es- 
pecially the Freshmen. The hock- 
ey team made its contribution by 
defeating the Moravian hockey 
eleven 8-0. 

The game began to the tune of 
cheers lead by our head cheer- 
leader for hockey games, "Tiny" 
Kline. After two unsuccessful at- 
tempts to score, a Valley drive 
enabled "Ruthie" Kramer, left 
inner, to score. A few minutes 
later "Mac," right inner, put the 
second Valley score on record. 
Again the ball traveled toward the 
Moravian goal from which point 
"Betts," center forward, scored 
the third tally. 

Lebanon Valley continued on 
the offensive. As the Du.tchgirls 
were attacking the Moravian goal, 
a foul by the Moravian goalie re- 
sulted in a penalty bully which 
is taken by the defending goalie 
and a member of the attacking 
team, usually the center forward. 
From this bully "Betts" again 
scored for The Valley. 

The home team remained on 
the offensive for the entire second 
half of th game. Within a matter 
of seconds after the opening 
whistle "Hutch" scored — her first 
score of the season. In a few min- 
utes "Hutch" scored again, this 
time from a corner play. "Hutch" 
captured high scoring honors of 
the day when she drove a hard 
ball into the cage for the third 
time. The eighth and final goal of 
the game occurred when the ball 
rebounded from Ruthie's thumb 
to her stick and into the cage. The 
game ended with the Dutchgirls 
on the long end of an 8-0 score.

he gave many details about the 
plans that had been made for 
Homecoming. Mr. Richard Seiver- 
ling, Director of Public Relations 
of LVC, acted as moderator for 
the show, introducing Dr. Lynch 
and Al Moriconi, president of the

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, October 27, 194! 





We're ready for you now. T'was a murkey afternoon last Sat- 
urday in Lebanon, but what we saw was bright, Albright, bright. 
Some 30 Lebanon Valley footballers, to the intense delight of a sparce 
Home-coming gathering, put Moravian through the wringer, 3 4-13. 
They did it on spirit, hustle, drive and sundry other ingredients that 
go into a winning team. 

It was indeed a heart warming triumph. The Valley needed the 
victory in the worst way and Messrs. DiJohnson, Sample, Fischer, 
B'ova, Thomas, Gage and Associates provided the wherewithal. 

The Dutchmen took the opening kick-off and right from the 
start looked like they were going places — they were. They hustled out 
of the huddle, they hit hard, they blocked better than on any previous 
occasion this year, and began to obtain the cohesion they lacked at 
the start of the campaign. It paid precious dividends — victory. 


If DiJohnson were to arrange the Valley schedule he would no 
doubt fix it so we'd play Moravian 9 games each season. Hank, who 
always runs well against the Greyhounds, once again exhibited his 
famed trademark, "Hammering Hank," as he just about ran the 
Moravians right out of the stadium. 

Henry hit the Moravian line like a jet-job on a late date as he 
buled, smashed and powered to 203 yards on runs from scrimmage 
and a kick-off return. His classic dash of 102 yards was something 
we'll never forget. The blocking was beautiful. It was a perfect play. 


George Roman was superb. His spectacular defensive play set-up 
two Valley tallies and he also deflected a Moravian P.A.T. attempt. 
In the second quarter George intercepted a pass that Barret Oxley 
had knocked from the hands of a Moravian passer on the 22. Then 
Sample immediately fired to Fischer for a touchdown. In the fourth 
quarter he blocked a Moravian punt on the 27 which Bova picked up 
and scored. Great goin' George. 

The alert fans who saw Nick Bova score his touchdown got a 
great kick out of it. The big Valley tackle leaped into the air and 
grinned from ear to ear. He really had something to smile about. . . 
(Bob Fischer, who always manages to be different, was just that as he 
skillfully picked-off a hobbling T.D. pass 12 seconds before the half. 
. . . Glenn Thomas, whose name still isn't on the program, must 
spend his spare time raising four leaf clovers. In this game for about 
5 minutes, he caught a T.D. pass, a beauty thrown by sub quarterback 
Ray Dankowski. . . 

George Cardone throws the prettiest passes you'd ever want to 
see, even if he does give you heart failure getting 'em away. . . Most 
disappointed player was Barret Oxley when his T.D. pass was nuli- 
fied because of a penalty. . . Jerry Makris made a sparkling catch of 
Sample's down the middle aerial in the first period. . . 

Dale Shellenberger looked good on quick openers. The Red Lion 
Rabbit almost got away several times. . . Bud Lukens played a smash- 
ing game throughout. He blocked a punt to set-up the first L.V. score. 
. . . Not to be outdone, sub center Dan McGary intercepted a Moravian 
pass and went 3 yards before being knocked out of bounds. . . Walt 
Shonosky did some savage line backing. . . Bob Shaak played his best 
game of the year. . . Sherdell Snyder sparkeled at defensive right end. 

Walt Gage missed his first P.A.T. attempt as a Moravian man de- 
flected his first try. The Gager has now booted 9 out of 10. . . The 
games most daring play was in the second quarter when, with fourth 
and nine, Joe Oxley shot a strike to Shelly for 31 yards. . . Line play 
by L.V. was good as Moravian was held without a first down until 3 7 
seconds before the half. . . 

Up to Saturday's game Moravian had scored 77 points in 4 games, 
with 60 of them coming in the last quarter. Apparently they forgot to 
tell the Dutchmen about that. When the fourth quarter arrived Mor- 
avian probably wished their helmets never would have. 

DEPARTMENT OP HEALTH — Halfback Guy Euston, his face 
wrapped in bandages, was out of the infirmary long enough to see 
the game from the bench. "Lefty" received a busted jaw and facial 
injuries while scrimmaging the week before the game. He's been the 
hard luck member of the team this year and certainly deserves a bet- 
ter fate. So it's get better to a good Guy! 

ASIDE TO THE BAND — We, meaning all of the Valley fans, 
think L.V. has the best small college band we've ever seen. But how 
about some peppy, livelier music? The Colonel Bogey March, for in- 

Everyone in this picture, from Coach Kerr to Dick Fox im mc 
seems very, very worried. There was nothing to worry o6out. 3hou 
LVC came through with one of its most decisive victories against i n 
Moravian. ?ey 


LVC Meets Albright 
In Traditonal Clash 

It's Albright and Lebanon Val- 
ley in the big traditional game of 
the year. Next Friday night in Al- 
bright Stadium the Dutchmen will 
battle the Lions in what shapes up 
to be another soul-stirring game. 
Albright is L. V.'s oldest rival, 
with the first contest dating back 
to 1902. Up to this year each team 
has won 12 games with 2 of them 
ending in a tie. 

The Albright game is always 
the "game of the year." It's tra- 
ditional, and on that count alone 
you can take the dope book and 
past performance chart and chuck 
them out of the window. Nothing 
is fore-ordained in a traditional 
game. One need not go any further 
than back to last years contest to 
prove that point. 

Thus far this season Albright 
has won 2 games and lost 3. They 
have beaten Moravian and F. & M., 
and lost to West Chester, Lincoln, 
and Muhlenberg. In their last 
three outings they have shown 
vast improvement and at this 
stage of the campaign are just 
reaching their peak. 

The only common opponent that 
both the D-men and the Lions have 

" j ues 

played is Moravian. We beat thewhal 
34-13, Albright beat them, 33-the

Pol. Sci. Club Plans 
Off-Campus Meeting 

With a large turnout of candi- 
dates for membership, the Political 
Science Club held its second meet- 
ing of the year on Thursday, Oc- 
tober 27, in the Administration 
Building. In attendance, also, 
were observers from the classes 
In political science 10 and vari- 
ous officers of other campus or- 
ganizations who came to observe 
practical parliamentary procedure. 
For the benefit of all, an exercise 
in procedure was conducted by the 
regular members, Ray Kline, pre- 

The regular business meeting 
proceeded the exercise with Pres- 
ident Robert Moller in the chair. 
During this portion of the meet- 
ing, Al Moriconi, chairman of the 
Social Committee, announced that 
the club will hold its first business 
meeting off the campus on Friday, 
November 11, in the Hershey Com- 
munity Building. Miss Genevieve 
Blatt, executive director of the 
ICG, will be the guest speaker. 

Richard Evans and Richard Eis- 
enhour, members of the Political 
Science Club of Dickinson College, 
paid a good-will visit to the LVC 
organization with an eye to re- 
gional cooperation at the forth- 
coming ICG in Harrisburg. 

Y's Present Movie Friday; 
"Mr. Deeds Goes To Town" 

In accordance with their plan to 
present a broader program of so- 
cial activities for the campus, the 
Y's are sponsoring a series of 
movies which will be run through- 
out the year at various times. Al- 
though the movies are not the cur- 
rent ones showing in your home 
town movie houses, they are ones 
which, in the past, have made a 
great name for themselves. It 
was felt that many of these movies 
may have been missed by students, 
and, if they may have been seen, 
they would prove to be entertain- 
ing as well as valuable for the stu- 
dent body. . ^ . n „ a 

The first of these is being pre- 
sented tomorrow evening, Novem- 
ber 4, 1949, at 7:30 P. M., in 
Engle Hall. The movie being pre- 
sented is "Mr. Deeds Goes to 
Town", starring Gary Cooper and 
Jean Arthur. It was an Academy 
Award Winner of several years 
past, so that this should be enough 
of an incentive for all of you to 

This movie will serve as enter- 
tainment for those "dads" that 
should happen to arrive early for 
Dads' Day. All of these dads and 
all of the student body are invited. 
See you there. 

Film, Game, And Banquet 
Highlight Dad's Day Plans 

All is set for DADS' DAY '49 with activities starting on Friday 
evening, Nov. 4, with a movie — "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town." This will 
be the first movie of the year sponsored by the Y's and is being pre- 
sented for the entertainment of the dads as well as for all the college 
students. The entire weekend program has been prepared by the 

YMCA, Norman Bucher, Presi- 

Saturday afternoon Andy Kerr's 
"Flying Dutchmen" will play hosts 
to Lincoln University in the Leb- 
anon High School Stadium. This 
will be the first meeting of these 
two schools in football, and an in- 
teresting game should be in store 
for us. Prof. Rutledge and Bruce 
Wiser have agreed that the band 
will present their customary brand 
of talent — excellent, and they have 
been practising toward this end 
for the past week. The theme will 
jrobably be based on "old-fash- 
ioned" life, with the added stip- 
ulation that if any "extras" are 
teeded, the freshmen will per- 

In the evening the annual ban- 
quet will be served to the fathers 
and the sons in the dining hall. 
There will be group singing follow- 
ing the banquet at which time a 
chorus of Philo members will act 
as the leaders in the singing. 

To round out the day, Dr. 
Charles Mayser, retired coach of 
F. & M., has been secured to speak 
for the occasion. Due to the nature 
of his speech, which includes 
stunts of magic as well as material 
appropriate for after dinner 
speeches, he will speak to the 
fathers and the sons in Engle Hall. 

Albright Victory Brings 
Two More Holidays To LVC 

The faculty and administration 
have announced that LV students 
will have two extra days of vaca- 
tion this semester as a result of 
the victory over Albright last Fri- 
day. The first holiday will be the 
Monday following Thanksgiving. 
The second day will be January 2. 
This latter day was given because 
it was felt that original day pro- 
posed for return to school after 
Christmas, January 1, would 
have been too inconvenient for 
most students. However, it was 
stressed that students are not to 
consider this extra day of Christ- 
mas vacation is not to be con- 
strued as a permanent Athletic

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 3, 

. . . Add To The List 

The cheering of the students who attended the football game last 
Friday evening has evoked more cheers. These latter come from the 
many other persons who attended the game and heard the support 
given to the Dutchmen. Not least among the cheerers at any game is a 
character well-known to all students of the school — "Hot Dog" Frank. 
He runs around shouting at the top of his lungs after every gain. 
Apoplexy almost results when the team scores, and Hank Di Johnson's 
one hundred yard run last week against Moravian moved "HD" so 
much, that Henry found himself the recipient of a sound buss admin- 
istered by Annville's Hot Dog mentor. 

For a long time it has appeared that "HD" was the only enthusi- 
astic supporter of the team. Up to last Friday, student support was, in 
a word, lousy. Things have changed. It may have been the opposing 
team, or the weather, or the build up, or all of these combined. At any 
rate, the students finally cheered. More power to you. Let's hope that 
enthusiasm continues. In the meantime, La Vie hereby nominates 
"Hot Dog" Frank as an honorary member of the cheerleading squad. 

Ad Nauseum . . . 

Last week Jefferson Military College, Washington, Mississippi, 
was bequeathed $50,000,000 by a man named George Armstrong. This 
man Armstrong was a judge in the Supreme Court of the State of Mis- 
sissippi. He was supposedly a learned man. But when his lawyer, one 
Joseph Brown, read the conditions attached to this grant, people all 
over the country were shocked. According to the will, the college is 
open to all white Christians. "Only" Negroes, Japanese, Chinese, or 
other Asiatics would be barred. Jews who embrace the Christian faith 
may attend. 

JMC refused the grant, it might be noted, but the very fact that 
so-called educated men in this country can still entertain such bigoted 
notions reveals a deplorable condition. Coming at a time when the 
efforts of administrators, faculty members and students all over the 
country are directed toward the elimination of racial and religious 
discrimination, it is shocking proof of the die-hard attitude which still 
exists in some quarters. 

Oh, Genevieve, Sweet o . . 


I was walking across the campus last Thursday looking for butts, 
when one of my fellow students came running up grabbing me vice- 
like and smashing a two-inch Lucky into the turf with his size 

"Do you have a date for the Hallowe'en party, Saturday?" he 
squealed into my hearing aid, 

"My dear young man," I said, 
disdainfully, "I have better things 
to do than go prancing off to some 
silly party. Besides, no one has 
asked me." 

"They don't ask you; you ask 
them," he growled, rubbing some 
crib notes off his cuff. "So, c'mon! 
Let's grab someone and go, hey?" 

"Who shall we grab?" I asked, 
somewhat heatedly. 

"WE don't. YOU do!" he ex- 
claimed, chasing off after a to- 
mato in a biege sweater. 

After he left, I grabbed the 
first girl who walked by. 

"You're going to the Hallowe'en 
party with me," I said. 
"I am?" she said. 
"You are," I said. 
She did. 

We arrived at the party fairly 
early. At least it was early con- 
sidering that my date didn't fin- 
ish at the mines until seven. We 
were dressed as Beauty and the 
Beast. I won't say which one I 
was, but we hadn't been there five 
minutes until I was crowned 
Queen of the Ball. 

There were several hundred 
people there, plus a few chaper- 
ones standing around with black 
jacks. I gathered that the flies 
must have been rather offensive. 
Among the several hundred 
guests, there were many pretty 
girls, which caused me to shriek in 
ecstasy. When I looked at the one 
I brought, I just shrieked. 

Really, now. She could never 
live to be as old as she looked. 

Her name was Genevieve, but as 
fas as I'm concerned, the guy who 
wrote that song about Sweet Gen- 
evieve was born with an in-grown 
head. Her hair had all the bril- 
liance of a cloudy sunset, and it 
was so thick that she kept a book- 
mark in her mouth so she'd know 
which side of her head to feed. 
But she had lovely high cheek 
bones. In fact, they were so high 
they were above her eyes. This 
gave her a sort of Neanderthal 
look. Her eyelashes were so long 
she could have used them for 
toothpicks if she (would had 
have) had any teeth. And I'd 
never seen anyone with such long 
arms. She was the only person I'd 
ever met who could put on her 
shoes without bending over. 

But the orchestra was good. 
Throughout the evening they 
played fox-trots, waltzes, and out 
of tune. They even played some 
classical stuff. First, they'd play 
Faust, then they'd play slow, then 
Faust, then slow. I gathered it 
was a "bop" band, 'cause right in 
the middle of the number, the 
leader stopped them, demanding: 

"Awright! Who's the wise guy 
playing melody." 

I danced for what seemed hours. 
But finally my conscience got the 
better of me. So I took Genevieve 
off the wall and danced with her 
for a while. 

"Dancing is in my blood," she

After this I began looking 
around for THAT room. I asked 
the guy sitting next to me. 

"It's down the hall, on the left," 
he said, knowingly. 

"I wonder which door," I mused 
half-way down the hall. 

"That one," said Genevieve, 
pointing. "See the sign over the 

"Oh, yes!" I exclaimed. "Shall 
we go in?" 

"I'll be in shortly," she said. 

So I went into the bar by my- 

"No drinks for students," said 
Mighty Joe Young behind the bar. 

"But I'm over twenty-one," I 
complained. "I've lived, Jack. 
Look! " 

I exposed the tatoo on my chest. 
He whistled appreciatively, but 

"The Administration says 'No 
drinks.' " 

"Alright," I shrugged. "Give 
me a glass of milk." 


"Could I maybe have a SHOT 
of chocolate in it?" I pleaded. 

"The Administration say..." 

"I know. I know. No shots." 

He left to get the milk. By the 
time he had returned, Genevieve 
had joined me. 

"No dogs allowed," said the 
bartender, scowling. 

"That's my date," I explained. 

He looked sympathetic. "On 
second thought," he said, "maybe 
you do need a drink." 

"Never mind," i grumbled. 
We re going back to the party." 

When we arrived, someone was 
telling a ghost story. It was so 
tightening, everyone's teeth were 
chattering. I'm not the emotional 
type. I just took mine out and 
put them in my pocket. Right in 
the middle of the story some sissy 
fainted. First aid was adminis- 
tered, and in a couple of minutes 
I recovered. 

After this we played games, 
such as "bobbing for apples" 
"pinning the tail on the donkey"'

John Heck And Di Johnson Return; 
Albright Darkened By Kerrmen, 26-13 

As this reporter walked into Albright Stadium on Saturday night, 
two Albright cuties were overheard talking about this wonderful "Van 
Johnson" the Lebanon Valley College football team has. Upon further 
investigation I found out that the two Lionesses' were talking about 
our sensational "Hank Di" instead. Seeing my LVC button proudly 
attached to my trench coat, the fe- 

males moved over and said in 
their Albrightian accent, "Where 
is this remarkable 'human-tank' 
you-all have at Lebanon Valley?" 
Realizing they were talking about 
"Hank", I informed them that he 
was number 5 5. I told them to 
keep their beautiful eyes on Hen- 
ry and they would be sure to wit- 
ness a performance by one of the 
best collegiate football players 
they've seen all season. Scamper- 
ing over to the LVC side I joined 
the Valley faithful and I suppose 
the girls trotted over to their side 
of the field. 

As I sat down, the rains came 
and I had to stand up again to 
watch that schnazzy Lebanon Val- 
ley Band roll downfield. While 
the Dutchmen and Albright grid- 
ders were on the field for the first 
time, I noticed John Heck, a Grade 
AAA Valley rooter, collecting bets 
from his old Reading friends. Yes, 
tonight was the night. John Heck 
had returned! He had returned to 
that Albright Stadium in which he 
grew up and seven times tried to 
carry water for the Albright 
teams. Being turned down seven 
times, John gave up, and seeing 
"Jeeps" Jepson didn't want the 
job, the Valley inherited two fine 
students. Well, tonight was the 
night, yes, John Heck returned to 
Albright to cheer Di Johnson et 
compagnie onto a sizzling 26-13 
trouncing of LVC's arch rivals, the 
roaring, rootin'-tootin', red-hot, 
rambling, Red Lions of Albright. 

The game started under miser- 
able conditions, as the rain kept 
pouring down and there was that 
damp coldness in the air. Not 
many spectators seemed to move, 
however; this was one football 
game no one wanted to miss. 

Albright's Lions went into an ex- 
hibition of joy in the first quar- 
ter when left halfback Bill Krohto 
climaxed a 45 yard drive by dash- 
ing off tackle for a touchdown. 
Floyd Rightmire's placement was 
wide, but the Lions were out front 
6-0. Then Di Johnson made his 
debut of the evening, and I'm sure 
the two Albright women just loved 
it as Henry reeled off his first of 
a series of spectacular runs by 
galloping from the Lebanonian 28 
to the Albright 32 yard line. A 
few plays later "Hank" rammed 
to the six, but then the question 
arose whether "He is a ref!" or 
whether "He ain't a ref!" as LVC 
drew a fifteen yard penalty for 
illegal use of the hands, and was 
back on the 21. Joe Oxley tossed 
a short pass to Bob Fischer and 
shortly thereafter Dale Shellen- 
berger missed what could have 
been a touchdown pass from Ox- 
ley. Fred Sample took over the 
quarterbacking and fired a screen 
pass to the right to Di Johnson 
who grabbed the pigskin and 
slushed over the muddy turf for a 
touchdown. Walt Gage place- 

kicked the extra point to give the 
Blue and White a 7-6 lead. 

On the second play after the 
ensuing kickoff, Walt Tenley, an 
Albright back, broke through left 
tackle and romped 63 yards along 
the sidelines for the second and 
final Red and White tally. Johnny 
Krouse added the extra point by 
faking a kick and racing around 
right end to give the Red Lions a 
13-7 half time bulge. 

The rain kept pouring down and 
by now the field was a baby's 
dream for mud-pie material. After 
Albright kicked off to open the 
second half, LVC worked to the 
Albright 41 from where two long 
aerials fell incomplete. Di John- 
son went back into punt forma- 
tion, but instead of kicking the 
oval, he tucked it under his arm 
and scotoed around left end for a 
first down on the home team's 22. 
Oxley, failing to find a receiver 
for an intended forward, ran the 
ball down to the eight. Ray Dan- 
dowski, freshman passer, entered 
the tussle and flipped a pitch-out 
to the sterling Di Johnson, who 
steamrollered over for the touch- 
down. The ball and field was so 
vet and muddy that there was a 
fumble on the point after touch- 
down attempt and Gage's place- 
ment was wide leaving the game 
tied up at 13-all. 

A few minutes later, Shellen- 
berger and DiJohnson alternated 
in moving the ball to the Albright's 
2 6 from where Di Johnson pulled 
a fake reverse, and broke through 
for a run which ended in another 
"Di Jay TD." Gage booted the 
bonus marker and LVC had its 
arch rival on the losing end of a 
20-13 score. Joe Oxley had some 
iriends come up from Long 
Branch, N. J., and probably be- 
lieving they shouldn't go back 
witho.ut something to tell the 
folks, he hauled down a desperate 
Lion forward pass on his own 45, 
and behing some nifty blocking, 
roared down the field for the final 
touchdown of the evening. 

Albright tried more desperately 
to rally, but it was all over now; 
Coach Andy Kerr was cleaning the 
bench and all Albright attempts 
were being smothered by a charg- 
ing Blue and White line. As the 
final seconds were being ground 
out by the clock, John Heck rose 
and yelled, "I came, I saw, and 
Di Johnson sure messed up the 
evening for Albright." 

This was the best performance 
turned in by the Kerrmen this sea- 
son and the victory marked the 
fifteenth win against twelve set- 
backs and two ties in the series 
dating back to 1890. I met the 
two girls on the way out and one 
told me she learned two things 
from the game. First, "Di John- 
son Valley has a good team, and 
second, my raincoat is much more 
water repellent than I ever 
dreamed it was.

Second ''County Fair" 
Planned For Nov. 1 1 

The reports that have been com- 
J ing in from the organization heads 
concerning the County Fair seem 
to indicate that the Second Annual 
County Fair will surpass the pre- 
vious one in its galaxy of presen- 
J tation. This Y-sponsored program, 
with the proceeds going to the 

■ World Student Service Fund, is 
being arranged and prepared by 
Larry Guenther, WSSF represen- 
tative on the Y Cabinet. 

■ There are many new ideas, and 
some of the favorite "peep-shows" 
of last year will again be featured 
when the Fair is presented Novem- 

J ber 11, in the Administration 
f Building. 

No LaVie Next Week 

Limited by both budget and 
copy, the editors of La Vie have 
decided not to publish an edi- 
tion of the paper next Thurs- 
day, November 10. There will 
be an edition on the week of 
November IT, however. This 
past Tuesday a resolution was 
read to the SFC requesting

Hockey Team Chalks Up 
Fourth Straight Win 

The Flying Dutchgirls continued 
their winning streak last Saturday 
by defeating the Penn Hall team 
2-0 on the home field. Although 
the crowd was small, their cheers, 
led by "Raymie" Kline, spurred 
the girls closer to an undefeated 

The game began as an even 
match for both teams. However, 
the Lebanon Valley eleven soon 
took the offense and kept it dur- 
ing most of the first half. The 
Blue and White lassies attacked 
the Penn Hall goal with determin- 
ation but failed to score. A spir- 
ited backfield, led by "Libby" 
Roper, aggressive right halfback, 
kept the ball near the Penn Hall 
goal. From this position "Betts" 
Slifer, center forward, opened the 
scoring by accounting for the first 
L. V. tally. The first half ended 
with Lebanon Valley in the lead 

The second half found the visit- 
ing hockeyists striking deeper in- 
to the home territory. Ruth Ann 
Brown, left fullback, sparkled in 
the Blue and White defense. After 
ten minutes of the hard-fought 
battle, "Betts" accounted for the 
second score. A last minute Penn 
Hall drive failed to change the 
score. The game ended with the 
Smith lassies victorious, 2-0. 

Diane Randolph, our able goalie, 
touched the ball once during the 
entire match. In the Moravian tus- 
sule "Randy" was saved the trou- 
ble of touching the ball even once.

Alright, Albright 

We Told You So 

Well, they did it! Lebanon Valley 26 — Allbright 13. 

If ever a football team played great football Lebanon Valley did 
last Friday night in Albright Stadium when they ran Albright through 
the meat chopper, 26-13, before a sodden and valorous mob of 4,000. 

Polished, efficient and deliberate in their offensive execution 
and deadly in their defensive charging and tackling, Andy Kerr's 
Dandy Dutchmen attained a new peak of perfection as they annihilated 
Albright in flamboyant fashion. 

It was a victory for all hands to remember. A really Grade-A, 
special, number one exhibition of fine football. Henry Di Johnson, the 
greatest one man show Valley football has ever known, was tremen- 
dous; Andy Kerr, the old maestro, was magnificant; the entire L. V. 
team was unbeatable. 

It was, without a doubt, one of the greatest games in the long 
series of Lebanon Valley-Albright rivalries. 

Valley fans who braved the Reading rain to see the game sat 
moistly transfixed as the awe-inspiring Dutchmen played a game that 
will never be forgotten. Lebanon Valley faithful roared their approval 
and went wild with delight as enthusiasm and hysteria reigned — 
rained as Albright got all wet. 


Be there any football minded citizens in the crowd who hadn't 
heard of the cunning of Andy Kerr before the Albright affair, they left 
the stadium with the greatest respect for him. For during the game, 
they saw a-plenty as the football professor executed one in a long line 
of coaching masterpieces for which he is famous. 

Andy, who has now brought the team along in amazing fashion 
in the last two weeks, did a magnificant job. 

He held secret sessions all last week, but it was no secret what 
he accomplished. Junking the T for the most part and shifting to his 
own time-honored double-wing, Kerr came up with a beautifully 
coached team. Di Johnson was the key man on the offense. Handling 
the ball at fullback, he did a commendable job. His spinners were a 
sight to behold. 

During the second quarter, a press box tenant, upon seeing Sample 
enter the game at quarterback on fourth down and seven to go, 
remarked, "Here comes a Kerr play, he's got a million of 'em." And 
as if to say, "Brother, you ain't seen nuthin' yet," Fred fired to Shelly 
for 14 yards and a first down. 

"Here were a few of Andy's "million plays." Situation: On Al- 
bright 41 with fourth and ten. Di Johnson dropped back in his usual 
punting position, but instead of kicking, he ran the short side up the 
lef tfor 19 yards and a first down to the 22. Situation: On Albright 8 
and behind, 13-7. Andy sent in frosh quarterback Ray Dankowski and 
Danny tossed a beautiful pitchout to Di Johnson on the right who 
scored standing up. These were just two plays in Kerr's repertoire. 

Andy really did a job. He had the team up. He worked out a new 
offensive attack. He had trickery and surprise plays. He had a win- 
ning team. He had everything — and doesn't Albright know it. 

! ! ! ! ! GREAT GOIN' TEAM ! ! ! ! ! 

In the final analysis it was a team victory. The Dutchmen played 
with confidence, enthusiasm, and efficiency in all departments of play. 
Albright, like Moravian, scored first, but the Valley refused to crack. 
They were relentless — driving, charging, tackling, and blocking. Fri- 
day night, playing in weather as gooey as used bubble gum, they never- 
theless showed poise and polish. 

Ken Rozelle suffered a dislocated shoulder and spent the night in 
the Reading Hospital . . . Joe Oxley measured up to his Temple show- 
ing of last season. Joe played a good all-around offensive and defen- 
sive game. He intercepted a pass and went 55 yards for the final Valley 
tally . . . 

L. V. line backing was one big reason Albright only got as far as 
our 45 yard line once in the second half . . . There are many, many 
names we could list — Roman, Fischer, Lukens, Tesnar, Quinn, Snyder 
— everyone. They all played ball as we knew they could. We're proud 
of 'em. 


Looks as though it has taken the rain to bring out the bloom in 
our running game. Our "Double-Trouble" backfield combo of Di John- 

One of the gridiron stars who 
really shown the other night was 
Long Branch's Joe Oxley. In this 
picture Joe is shown returning a 
punt in the fourth quarter of the 
game. It was typical of the con- 
certed effort on the part of the 
whole team, effort which resulted 
in one of the greatest victories in 
a long time, and which revived 
that ol' school spirit. Joe, a soph- 
omore, has been on the team for 
two years. His brother Barrett 
joined the squad this year and has 
shown that he, too, is an Oxley 
true to the name.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 17, 

More Power To You . . . 

Charles Kiscadden, LVC student who was burned out of his home 
last weke in a tragic fire, will be the recipient of funds collected by 
the members of the Freshman class this Saturday afternoon at the 
Frosh-Soph football game. Members of the two classes will collect as 
much money as possible from the persons attending the game and give 
it to the ever-growing Kiscadden Fund which is being pushed all over 
Annville. Kiscadden, a senior, was burned out of his home last week- 
end. The fire destroyed all of his furnishings, clothing, and other 
personal effects. As a result, Charlie was left without a home; in fact, 
he was almost destitute. La Vie certainly endorses this fund, and sin- 
cerely hopes that any other campus groups will find the Fund worthy 
of some sort of contribution. 

Senior Snapshot 



I was walking madly across the campus last week, head lowered 
and moring on all four cylinders (late for Psych, class as usual) when 
I was brought up short by the striking sight of two boxcars coming my 
direction. Oh no, what a relief, not boxcars — feet. Well, there is only 
one pair of feet like that on campus. Lifting my head I muttered a 
hurried hello in the vicinity of a chest and an answer came back from 
somewhere in the stratosphere. It was that man about campus, that 
grim from Lebanon, that guy with the girls, well, you guessed it — 
Ray Kline, blue eyes curly (curly!!) hair and all. ("We have it from 
reliable sources that he had an offer from Curl-A-Wave to pose for 
their ad, but may take the one from Toni Home permanents instead). 

Ray, better known as "Tiny" and considered just about the 
BIGGEST thing on campus is a familiar and well-liked figure to all of 
Valley. If there is anything of interest going "Tiny" will be there, 
usually surrounded by a bevy of the fairer sex. Many a Frosh girl has 
felt a heart bump I wager when "Tiny" lopes into view (to say nothing 
of the sophomore, junior, and senior girls). 

Active in almost all college affairs, "Tiny" is an outstanding 
senior holding down both responsible jobs of being president of Student 
Faculty Council and Men's Day Student Council As the ex-president 
of the Pol Sci Club he has gone for several years to I. C. G. In connec- 
tion with the Freshman activities "Tiny" has done a great deal in re- 
viving the waning spirit of the Valley and deserves much credit. 

"We predict this tall, rangy, six foot five guy is going to go places. 
With that sense of humor and friendly personality how can he mips? 
"Tiny" gets our vote as the man of the week and all around "good 
guy." .

Green Blotter Honors New 
Members At Last Meeting 

Last Thursday evening, Novem- 
ber 9, 1949, the Green Blotter 
Club held its third meeting of the 
current semester at the home of 
Dr. George C. Struble. 

Four aspiring young writers, 
Joan Orlando, Robert Geyer, Mark 
Raessler, and Glenn Woods, were 
accepted for membership in the 
Club and received their baptism of 
critical fire in the barrage which 
followed the reading of their ap- 
plication manuscripts. It was a 
pathetic, bewildered group of 
newcomers who saw their creative 
efforts treated as shabbily as a 
year-old Russian friendship note 
in the Tito filing system, and it 
was only the appearance of Mrs. 
Struble, with a tray of delicious 
nut-bread sandwiches and a pitch- 
er of fruit punch, that saved them 
from complete despondency. 

During the meeting it was de- 
cided that a new policy would be 
followed in admitting new mem- 
bers. In the future, manuscripts 
for application may be submitted 
to Professor Struble whenever a 
vacancy exists in the membership 
quota. At present there are open- 
ings for five additional members. 
All students interested in creative 
writing and in finding an outlet 
for their creative efforts are urged 
to submit manuscripts.

Kerrmen Close Season 
With Upsala Of Jersey 

Tomorrow evening the 1949 
version of the Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege football will close out another 
season, by playing hosts to Upsala 
College of East Orange, New Jer- 
sey. The contest will mark the 
fourth time that the Flying Dutch- 
men have pitched battle against 
the Vikings. Never has a Blue and 
White aggregation suffered defeat 
at the hands of these Jerseyites. 
In the first clash between the two 
schools in 193 7 the Valleyites 
were victorious on a field goal 3-0. 
In 1940 the Dutchmen thumped 
thf- Norsemen 27-14 and last sea- 
son Norm Lukens, our center this 
year, blocked an Upsala punt in 
the last period; picked up the 
bouncing pigskin and raced over 
the goal for a touchdown as the 
Annviller's won 19-13. 

"Y" Group Plans For 
Thanksgiving Service 

The annual early morning 
Thanksgiving service will be con- 
ducted at 6:00 A. M., Wednesday, 
November 23, in Engle Hall. This 
service is one of the special religi- 
ous services held by the Y's 
throughout the year. 

A regular worship service will 
be conducted by students, includ- 
ing special music and the short 
meditation by Norman B. Bucher. 
President of the YMCA. 

As is customary, a Communion 
Service will be held, directed by 
Rev. David Gockley. 

10 Commandments 
For Pol Sci Major 

1. Go to every class and even 
make up classes you didn't miss. 

2. Carry at all times: 

a. copy of Time. 

b. section IV of the NY Times. 

c. Newseek. 

d. Robert's Rules of Order. 

e. Republican party pin. 

3. Make sure at least two of 
your relatives are, or have been 
enrolled in Columbia University,

7. Never be seen on the streets 
at 7:45, you may get caught. 
That's because there is only ONE 
radio news commentator, Edward 
R. Murrow. Walter Winchell,

vague imaginations of the masses 

8. Believe there is only one 
spaghetti, that is Franco-Ameri-

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, November 17, 15 





Tomorrow night in Lebanon Stadium marks the end of an era. 
The Valley-Upsala game will be the finale of a four year post-war 
period which saw college football reach its greatest heights ever. 

Never again will small college football fans see as good a 
brand of football as has been seen in these past four years. Teams 
have been made up of older, mature, more experienced athletes who 
came back from the war to make their mark in gridiron history. 
The Valley has been no exception. 

There are five seniors who were developed on and made up 
these L.V. teams who will make their final football appearance 
tomorrow night; and the feeling persists here that it's going to 
be a memorable last appearance, too. 


DiJohnson, Bowman, Roman, Shaak and Gage are the seniors. 
Likeable, all-around athletes, these are the guys whose spirit, 
determination and guts provided the ways and means for many 
Valley victories. 

The record they are leaving behind them is a credit to L. V. 
football. Over their 4 year span of 32 games, L.V. teams have 
won 18, last 11, and tied 3. 

Here, in brief, are short sketches of the seniors: 

HENRY Di JOHNSON. 'Nuff said! 

Great is a loose and promiscuous word in sports. But DiJohnson 
is great. A gifted guy if there ever was one, Hank will show his 
wares for the last time tomorrow night, so take a good look, the 
Valley will never see the likes of him again. 

DiJohnson, our choice for All-State and Little All-America 
recognition, has more competitive spirit, determination, athletic 
ability and just plain all-around greatness than we've ever seen. 
He has been a starter on every Valley football, basketball and 
baseball team, and upon graduation will be the only athlete in the 
history of the college to have won 12 varsity letters. 

Though a bit premature, we pass the following suggestion to 
the athletic department: Retire Di Johnson's jersey — Number 5 5. 
Hank has been a one-man Valley sports show. He combines everything 
a great athlete should be and it would be a fitting and proper 
tribute to one of Lebanon Valley's all-time great athletes. 

BOB BOWMAN, co-captain of this years' team, has been a 
backfield starter since his freshman year. A durable, rugged indi- 
vidual, his consistant play has played a prominent part in the team's 
success. Bob's blocking, defensive play and occasional runs will be 
hard to replace, and so will his sparkling humor. His farewell to 
football will mark 7 years of play, three in high school, four in 
college, on the same Lebanon High field. 

GEORGE ROMAN, one of the better defensive ends we've seen 
all year, is going to leave quite a gap to be filled. Jersey George, 
rarely spectacular, but always reliable, has turned a workmanlike 
job over the last two seasons. A conscientious team player who could 
be counted on in the clutch, George has performed well on Valley 
football teams. 

BOB SHAAK, courageous and determined, will be manning 
left tackle for the last time. Although plagued by a serious knee 
injury for two years, Bob has been a staunch tackle for the Dutch- 
men. Many, many times overlooked and unsung, he has neverthe- 
less played some sterling ball for L.V. His presence in the line will 
be missed. 

WALT (P.A.T. — Pretty Accurate Toe) GAGE, has been a 
double standout. As a guard his frosh, soph, and part of his junior 
year, and an extra point kicker the last two years, Walt is a four- 
letter man. He was a good guard until his shoulder sidelined him, 
but he continued to kick extra points and thus far this season 
has kicked 19 for 22. He has played "his game" to the hilt. 

These then are five — DiJohnson, Bowman, Roman, Shaak, and 
Gage — five fine footballers, five grand guys. Tomorrow night in 
Lebanon Stadium, four years, a few tears, and many cheers later, 
they will play their last football for Lebanon Valley. 

We hate to see them go. 

Hockey Girls Chalk 5 Wins In '49; 
Dutchmen Lose To Powerful Scranton 

During the past two weeks the 
Flying Dutchgirls have met two 
more opposing hockey teams — 
Shippensburg and Millersville. 
The games resulted in a 2-0 win 
and 2-2 tie respectively. 

The girls journeyed to Ship- 
pensburg State Teacher's College 
on Wednesday, November 2, to 
meet the Shippensburg hockeyists. 
The game was a rough contest 
from the opening bully until the 
closing whistle. Somewhere amid 
the fracas, Betts Slifer, center for- 
ward, scored the first Blue and 
White goal. Halftime score was 
1-0 in favor of the Valley. 

As the game continued those too 
often unsung heroines, the back- 
field flyers, proved their strength. 
Peg Bower, Libby Roper, and 
Jeanne Hutchinson formed a 
clicking halfback combination. 
Elaine Fake and Ruth Ann Brown 
composed the impregnable full- 
back defense. It should be men- 
tioned that "Randy" Randolph, 
guardian of the goal, did not 
touch the ball during the entire 
game. Lebanon Valley moved into 
scoring position; from a corner 
play, Hutch accounted for the sec- 
ond L. V. score. The game ended 
with the Dutchgirls on the long 
end of a 2-0 score. 

Our lassies traveled to Millers- 
ville last Saturday to meet ex- 
tremely tough competition. With- 
in five seconds after the opening 
whistle, Ruthie Kramer had the 
first Valley goal recorded as past 
history. The Dutchgirls were then 
put on defense for the rest of 
the first half. Five minutes before 
halftime the Millersville center 
forward tied the score. 

A fighting Valley eleven began 
the second half. No further score 
was made by either team although 
many opportunities presented 
themselves. With only two min- 
utes remaining, a strong L. V. 
drive up the field resulted in the 
second goal, Ruthie again scoring. 
The heartbreak occurred when 
Millersville forced their way 
through our fighting backfield to 
even the score in the last teni 
seconds of the game. The final] 
score was 2-2. 

The team's record to date ln-j 
eludes five wins and one tie. Thel 
L. V. lineup includes "Mickey"! 
Begg, "Mac" MacFarland, "Betts^ 
Slifer, "Ruthie" Kramer, Jane} 
McMurtin, "Libbey" R o p e r j 
Jeanne Hutchinson, "Peg" BowerJ 
Elaine Fake, Ruth Ann Brown, 
and "Randy" Randolph. Lois Ort 
and "Lee" Whitman substituted. 


After a scoreless first quar>26tl'

ond period; added fifteen 
points in the second half, andtAl

Prof. Ertckson Present 
At Recent Math Meetings 

During the recent Thanksgiv- 
ing recess, Professor Robert L. 
Erickson of the mathematics de- 
partment attended mathematical 
meetings at Chicago, Illinois. Sec- 
tional meetings of the Mathemati- 
cal Association of America were 
held at Illinois Institute of Tech- 
nology. The Central Association 
of Science and Mathematical 
Teachers held it anual meeting at 

Edgewater Beach Hotel. Profes- 
sor Erickson was a co-author with 
Dr Maurice L. Hartung of the 
University of Chicago of a paper 
that was presented at this meet- 
ing This paper was entitled 
"Graphical Methods in Science and 
Mathematics Teaching.'; The 
principle contents of this paper 
were- 1. Major purposes of 
Graphs 2. Alteration of the shaps 
of the graph for various changes 
in the scales. 3. Application of 
the scalar modulus in construc- 
tion of a graph. 4. Various types 
of graphs and their application. 

The Wig and Buckle Club will 
present their first major presenta- 
tion of the year tomorrow evening 
in Engle Hall. The play, BLITHE 
SPIRIT, a Noel Coward comedy, 
will star David Wallace, Julie 
Thatcher, Dolores Zarker, and 
Dori Eckert. Theodore Keller, in- 
structor in English, is the direc- 
tor of the production. He has been 
assisted by James Murray, presi- 
dent of the Club. Paul Kauffman 
is production manager, assisted 
by George Haines. Bob Eigen- 
brode is stage manager, Red 
Schwalm is in charge of the light- 
ing, and makeup for the cast will 
be handled by Audrey Geidt and 
Janet Eppley. Charles Kagey has 
charge of all publicity for the 
play. George Haines is property 
chairman, and is assisted by Vir- 
ginia Wagner, Barbara Metzger, 
and Ronald Wolf. Jeanne Hull is 
business manager. 

BLITHE SPIRIT has remained 
over the years one of the best- 
liked of the many Noel Coward 
farces. It concerns itself with 
ghosts and the comical trouble 
they can bring to an innocent Eng- 
lish gentleman. One of the strong- 
est and funniest characters in the 
play is Madame Arcati, a medium, 
whose attempts to make contacts 
with the spirit world touch off 
the comic proceedings of the play. 

Admissiton charges are: Eighty 
cents for adults, and forty cents 
for students and children. Curtain 
time is 8:15 p. m.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 8, 1$L< 

The Best Laid Plans . • . 

The readers of La Vie will find elsewhere in this issue the pic 
tures of the nine persons chosen this year for the '4 9-' 50 edition of 
Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. 

These men and women were chosen because they are considered to 
be outstanding leaders of the Senior class of LVC. They all deserve 
the honor. 

It must be admitted that the persons who chose them had a 
hard job; there are many seniors who justly deserve the honor and 
are of necessity not on the list. It would seem, nevertheless, that 
this list of prominent seniors is not a cross section of the leadership 
in the senior class. It would also seem that the method of choosing 
them this year was faulty. There was no committee. There was no 
overall faculty approval. In fact, after investigation, it was discov- 
ered that apparently only three people ever got the chance to make 
nominations for the list. Of those three people, the final decision was 
left in the hands of one person. The final list was not submitted to 
the original nominators for approval. 

This whole system needs correcting. The editors of La Vie sug- 
gest that a Faculty-Student-Administration committee be appointed 
to nominate next year's list, and that the final list be submitted to 
the faculty for final approval. True, there is some doubt in the minds 
of many persons on campus as to the ultimate value of the Student's 
Who's Who. But as long as we have a list of students in the book, 
let's at least do it in an orthodox fashion. 



Shining cap of wavy blonde hair, clear blue eyes, a wistful 
rather dreamy yet gay expression, tasteful clothes, and there you 
are — a quick portrait of Jeanne Bozarth. 

Beauty and brains, it is said, seldom go together, but in the gal 
of the week they seem to have been blended in equal and large pro- 
portions with just enough sparkling wit as seasoning. Result — some 

Boz, an English major, is very gifted in a literary way and her 
humorous stories on life and people on and about the Valley campus 
are familiar to all readers of La Vie, of which she is a member (take 
a look on page three). She is secretary of the Green Blotter Club, 
belongs to the College Board of Madmoiselle magazine, and in addi- 
tion has had poems published in the National Anthology of College 

As a senior she is president of Delphian Society and as a junior 
was a member of the Quittie staff doing all the art work for the 

Samples of her art work are often displayed on the bulletin 
boards in the Ad building and elsewhere in the form of posters 
testifying not only to her talent but also to her interest in campus 
activities. Boz is never too busy to help out when she is needed. 

Boz who would be an asset and decoration to any college campus 
is a Valleyite we are proud to call our own. Giving you then, Jeanne 
Bozarth, number one on the hit parade for this week and La Vie's 
own choice for Who's Who of 1949-50.

ceived word from the editors of 
that the nine students pictured 
above were nominated for this 
year's edition by a faculty com- 
mittee of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege. The students were awarded 
this national recognition for su- 
perior work on the campus in all 
phases of curricular and extra- 
curricular activities. The Stu- 
dent's Who's Who has been pub- 
lished annually since 193 4, and 
is distributed to many business 
organizations throughout the 
United States. The publishers 
of the book also maintain a Place-

"It's good to be here." This 
and much more is the reaction of 
Felix Viro, our Displaced Person 
student. But let's have Felix tell 
us just what it's like to be an 
Estonian abroad. 

"I was born in Luunja, Estonia, 
in 1927. My father was a farmer, 
but not always a farmer, some- 
times a smith, cobbler, lots of 
things. Estonia is not mountain- 
ous country, rolling, hilly . . . yes, 
like Pennsylvania in places. In 
winter we have four months of 
snow, maybe, and then we ski . . . 
ski for joy, fun." 

"In Tartu I went to the Gym- 
nasium. Tartu is a big city. Here 
is the only Estonian University 
and many professors came from 
Germany and other countries to 
study. In the Gymnasium we take 
14 courses, every year we have 
Estonian, English, another langu- 
age, and Latin. These we have all 
the time from the beginning. This 

school maybe equals high school 
and two years of college." 

"D. P. Camp? I was in Geisling- 
en, Germany, for five years. It 
vas an Estonian D. P. Camp, 4,000 
people, run by the International 
Refugee Organization. Before it 
vas run by the U.N.R.A.A. . . . and 
everyone says Uncle U. R. A. A. 
better than Uncle I. R. O. Here 
I worked and went to school. In 
the summer it was nice that the 
U. S. Army loaned us aquipment 
and we camped. Last summer I 
was program director of the camp 
for three months. This was a Y.M. 
C.A. Camp. Music? In camp I play 
the accordian, but I have not one 
and I play very little." 

"It was October fifth when I 
got to New York. Here I was for 
three weeks and I worked in a 
hospital. I stayed at the Estonian

Campus Chatter 

Back from Thanksgiving vaca- 
tion and everything the same — 
normal or abnormal as the case 
may be. 

The Conserv Formal took the 
spotlight as the event of the week. 
This first formal of the year 
brought out ever so many of our 
talented musicians and guests, in- 
cluding Dori Eckert and Tiny, 
"Jeep" Jepson and Jim Handley,' 
"Etzie" and Mel Schiff, "Phyl" 
Dale and Lynn Blecker, Gerry De- 
Long and Felix Viro, Jane Mc- 
Murtrie and Don Coldren, Marge 
Halburt and Bob Hess, Grace 
Frick and Allen Kuppenhaver, 
Joyce Hammock and Neil Timber- 
lain, Flo Lauder and Mel Knipe, 
alumnae Mary Kat Wolfe, Mary 
Lee Glover, Dottie Zink and their 
dates . . . also Mary Tillson and 
Ralph Downey, and many new 
faces of those "guys" and "gals" 
from home. 

The Chemistry and Political 
Club entertained over the week- 
end. The former had a "bang-up" 
banquet-dance at the Penn Harris; 
the latter had . . . well, it was 
different and loads of fun. Tiny 
Kline, Jim Gregg, and John Ni- 
lan certainly do make the cutest 
girls ... in a chorus line. And 
Ronnie Wolfe can give the oddest 
interpretation of a "tree" . . . also, 
just a note of "info" to John 
Charles Smith that Ruthie Kra- 
mer's name is not MARY. 

Speaking of "Smitty," that 
mustache was a one and only . . . 
Congratulations to Prof. Fairlamb 
on his recent engagement to alum- 
na Joann Kessler . . . congrats 
also to the upperclassmen for de- 
feating the Sophs in football. Ref- 
eree Nick Bova having difficulty 
determining a "straight" line . . . 
Lou Bowman having the muddiest 
jersey; Lou Hemmingway having

team out for Johnny Stamato — 
he's still alive . . . Rec. Hour be- 
ginning to look more hopeful. . . 
all of 12 couples . . . those new 
records may help! 

If you see South Hall rock on 
its foundations, don't be alarmed; 
it's only the day-student chorus 
line at work. That's a snappy di- 
version step there, girls. Ruth 
Ann Brown's affections have taken 
a new turn . . . This holiday diver- 
sion has ceased to be just a fling — 
counting the days to the Christmas 
holiday . . . The Shroyer sisters 
flanked by Walt Gage and Nick 
Bova Sunday evening . . . Paul Ed- 
wards taking an advanced course 
in blondes . . . How about those 
question-answer experts in educa- 
tion classes? You can't beat them 
. . . Surprise of the week: "Mic- 
key" Begg venturing across cam- 
pus Monday morning without Jo 
Orlando . . . Phyl Dale looking like 
something out of MADAMOI-

With this column I'm saying "good-bye" to my readers — both 
of them — and to LA VIE. I have recently been appointed athletic 
publicity assistant for the college and it is a job that will take all 
of my free time, so my weekly column must go, and with regrets it 

What would be more fitting than to close shop with a story on 
our favorite topic, Hank DiJohnson, the most magnificant fullback 
Lebanon Valley football has ever known. 

As everyone knows by now, Hank was named "Pennsylvania's 
Most Valuable Small College Player of 1949" by the International 
News Service in a poll conducted among coaches, sports writers and 
radio experts. Twenty-six players were nominated for the award but 
Hank. . ."received 12 votes to qualify easily as the outstanding 
candidate. He completely beat out Clarion's center, Lignelli, and 
Juniata's halfback, Mike Dzvonar." 

The award was a great tribute to a great guy. It was a grand 
climax to Hank's brilliant four-year football career. He has been 
the biggest athletic publicity magnet L. V. has had in at least the 
last two decades. Our suggestion that Hank's jersey, number 5 5, be 
retired, met with the approval of athletic director Ralph Mease. It 
shall be thus. 

The secret of DiJohnson's success — and it really isn't much of 
a secret — is that he has all the physical, mental, and moral equip- 
ment of a truly great athlete. We remarked in our pre-season foot- 
ball column that, "This is DiJohnson's year." But we won't take 
any credit for being a prophet on that one. Everyone here at the 
Valley knew the same thing. His selection as "Pennsylvania's Most- 
valuable Small College Player of 1949" was in one word, Perfect! 
There never has been and never will be an "all" team that will 
Please everyone. So individualistic and personal are such teams that 
everyone and his Cousin Clarence is usually slightly indignant at 
s °me ommisions. This year's All-State team didn't prove an exception. 

Our man, Hank DiJohnson (there's that name again), made 
Jhe third AP All-State team. DiJohnson third team stuff? A guy goes 
patty just thinking about it. There was an overwhelming feeling in 


corner that Hank got — if you will pardon a pure Shakespearean

Undefeated LYC Hockeyists Banqueted 

The Flying Dutchgirls drove their way through a tough schedule 
to chalk up the first undefeated hockey season in the history of Leb- 
anon Valley College. The final celebration of the season occurred last 
night when the team was given a banquet at the Green Terrace. In ad- 
dition to the coach, Mrs. Ernestine Smith, the faculty members who 
attended were Mrs. Clyde Lynch, 

Miss Mary Gillespie, Miss Pauline 
Sutton, Dr. Lena Lietzau, and 
Mrs. Violet Pagan. At that time a 
gift was presented to Mrs. Smith 
by Captain Ruthie Kramer. 

To summarize the victorious 
season — the Dutchgirls opened 
their season at Gettysburg on Oc- 
tober 8. The girls fought a hard 
game — -on an extremely hot day — 
and accounted for their first win 
the score being 5-2. Albright was 
the next L.V. opponent on October 
15. The Blue and White lassies 
found themselves in a first half 
slump; however, they emerged in 
the second half to take the game 
by a 3-2 score. One of the out- 
standing features of Homecoming 
Day was the 8-0 defeat that our 
hockeyists handed the Moravian 
team. By this time the series of 
victories was well on its way. 

Penn Hall was the next Leb- 
anon Valley victim bowing to the 
Dutchgirls 2-0. On November 5 
the Smith lassies traveled to Ship- 
pensburg to hand that eleven a 2-0 
defat on the Shippensburg field. 
After a week and a half lay-off, 
the Valley girls traveled to Mil- 
lersville where they tied the only 
game of the season 2-2 as the 
Millersville left inner scored in 
the last five seconds of the game. 
The Dutchgirls ended their sea- 
son with a bang by handing the 
Susquehanna lassies a 10-0 defeat 
in front of a cheering crowd. In 
fact, the band even paraded at 
half time. 

Considering a few statistics, 
statistics, Lebanon Valley scored 
32 goals as compared to their op- 
ponents' 6. Individual scoring 
honors went to Ruthie Kramer 
and Bets Slifer who had nine 
goals each to their credit. Jeanne 
Hutchinson was next in line by 
scoring seven goals. Helen Mac- 
Parland accounted for five more 
tallie; Elaine Barron and Mickey 
Begg broke into the scoring col- 
umn with one score for each of 

The Junior Varsity had only two 
games during the season and 
dropped both of them — to Ship- 
pensburg 4-0 and to Millersville 

Most Valuable Player Award 
goes to the coach, Mrs. Ernestine 
Smith. Starting with only four 
girls who saw much Varsity action 
in previous years, she whipped in 
to shape the best team Lebanon 
Valley has had. A former student 
of Lebanon Valley and also a 
graduate of East Stroudsburg 
State Teachers' College, Mrs. 
Smith served some time in the 
Marines during the war. She join- 
ed the Lebanon Valley faculty last 
year. Since that time she has 
coached the two record breaking 
hockey teams. We only hope she 
continues to produce such teams. 

There were only two seniors on 
the team this year — Ruthie Kra- 
mer and Betts Slifer. Both have 
seen four years of Varsity hockey 
here at L.V. Ruthie, the tricky 
left inner and team captain, is a 

graduate of John Harris High 
School where she played intra- 
mural hockey, basketball, and 
various other sports. Betts hails 
from Spring City High School 
where she played hockey since 
seventh grade. Betts also plays on 
the basketball team having three 
years of Varsity playing to her 
credit. She took over the position 
of center forward vacated by Jan 
Weaver's graduation last year. 

Helen MacFarland, faithful 
right inner, is a junior coming 
from Glenside. She has been play- 
ing Varsity hockey and basketball 
since her Freshman days. 

Ruth Ann Brown, our left full- 
back who never misses a tackle, 
is part of the local talent, a Leb- 
anon lassie. She confines her 
sports activities to hockey having 
played two years of Varsity. Since 
she is only a junior, we'll be see- 
ing more of her next year. 

Peg Bower, a new member of 
the Varsity, proudly claims Cham- 
bersburg as her home. Peg lends 
her talents to the left halfback 

Our strong center halfback, 
Jeanne Hutchinson, is one of 
those Jerseyites of which there 
are so-o-o-o many on campus. 
Hutch saw quite a bit of action 
last year and will be remembered 
as one of the outstanding players 
of the season this year. She is also 
one of the high scorers on the bas- 
ketball team. 

Libby Roper, dependable right 
halfback, is a foreigner in our 
midst — coming from 'way down 
South in Delaware. Libby is a 
Sophomore this year; she saw lit- 
tle action last year but emerged 
this year as one of our finest de- 
fense players. 

Mickey Begg, another immi- 
grant from Jersey, is our speedy 
right wing. Mickey had played in 
high school but had hated the 
game. A Sophomore, Mickey has 
two more years to equal her pres- 
ent performance. 

Elaine Fake, an authentic 
Dutchgirl from Ephrata, held 
down the right fullback position. 
She cleared the circle many a time 
with those commendable long 
drives although she gave us heart 
failure many time by her calm- 

Last, but not least of the Sopho- 
mores, our very able goalie, Di- 
ane Randolph, another of these 
gals from John Harris High 
School. In three entire games this 
season Randy did not touch the 
ball at all — a feat not accom- 
plished by many goalies. In the 
harder games the fact that our 
opponents scored only six goals 
during the entire season is a fact 
that speaks for itself. 

Jane McMurtrie, a Freshman 
from Kennet Square, played the 
left wing position a great part of 
the season. Janie had played some 
high school hockey but never the 
wing position. She played more

Hockey Banquet 

(Continued from Page Pive) 

Varsity hockey this year than any 
other Freshman on the squad. 

Three other girls saw some Var- 
sity action this year. Elaine Bar- 
ron, tricky little Jerseyite, proved 
her versatility by playing both left 
halfback and left wing — at differ- 
ent times, of course. Lois Ort, 
fondly known as "Dead-eye," is 
another Sophomore member of 
the squad and one of our up-and- 
coming backfield players. Lee 
Whiteman, who hails from Haw- 
thorne, New Jersey, played in two 
of the games; never having played 
before, she turned in a creditable 

We can't forget the one who 
kept us in good spirits by her 
many songs and jokes. A hockey 
trip wasn't a hockey trip without 
Beamie. Although she was in the 
infirmary during part of the sea- 
son, the team continued to win — 
"for Beamie." 

Lois Shetler, a Junior from Jen- 
kinstown, has been a member of 
the squad since her Freshman 
days. She suffered an arm injury 
near the beginning of the season 
and was unable to play during the 
remainder of the season. 

It wasn't only those girls who 
played during the games who did 
the winning. Without the other 
girls who came out to practice, 
who gave the Varsity their compe- 
tition, who were faithful to the 
squad, who cheered during the 
games, the undefeated season 
would not have been possible. 
These girls will be playing more 
each year; watch for them. They 
include Betty Edelman, Nancy 
Linnen, Joyce Hammock, Evelyn 
Gehman, Jane Lutz, Ruth Shu- 
mate, Joan Orlando, Elizabeth De- 
wees, Gloria Gulliver, Geraldine 
Meese, and Helen Erickson. 

No hockey season would be 
complete without that game which 
is fast becoming a tradition on 
campus — the Bloomer Girls vs. 
the Shoulder Boys — that time 
when the football team trys to 
convince the hockey team that the 
girls are the weaker sex. This 
year's contest played on Novem- 
ber 22 ended in a 1-1 tie. Ruthie 
Kramer scored for the gals while 
Ralph Giordano accounted for the 
Shoulder Boys' goal. This mixture 
of hockey and laughs is attended 
by students and faculty alike and 
is becoming one of the major at- 
tractions of the ending of the fall 
sports season.

the unit of instruction to which 
such election applies. When the 
enrollment certification is for 
an ordinary school year, that 
period constitutes the unit of 
instruction and the veteran may 
not elect to have excess charges 
paid by the VA for any specific 
term or semester to the exclu- 
sion of other terms or semes- 
ters of the ordinary school year. 
Where enrollment has been ef- 
fected by th VA upon the basis 
of the veteran's election to have 
the VA pay excess charges, such 
election may not be rescinded 
at any time except with full 
agreement of the institution, 
and in no event may such elec- 
tion be rescinded after the VA 
has bade payment to the insti- 
tution for the period covered by 
the election." 

It will be noted from the above 
that after the voucher has been 
paid by the Veterans Administra- 
tion, the election by the veteran 
cannot be changed, even with the 
permission of the institution. 
Therefore, VA Form 7-1953a, now 
used to denote changes of election 
will not be honored in any case 
subsequent to the payment of the 
voucher for the period concerned. 
Similarly, a veteran cannot change 
his election retroactively for any 
period of training in order to re- 
coup entitlement.

Basket-ball Team 
Ready For Lincoln U. 

The 1949 version of the Leb- 
anon Valley basketball team will 
meet its second opponent of the 
current campaign on Saturday 
night when the Flying Dutchmen 
play hosts to the cagers of Lincoln 
University. The Lincoln hoopsters 
always prove to be a good aggre- 
gation and should give Coach 
Ralph Mease's charges a rather 
busy evening. Last season the 
visitors were the only team that 
managed to defeat the Blue and 
White twice. 

On Monday evening the Mease- 
men take the road to Selingsgrove 
where they will help Susquehanna 
University usher in its 1949 home 
season. The Crusaders, as well as 
the Dutchmen will have two games 
under their belts by then. The 
'hannamen opened their schedule 
at Ursinus and met Penn State last 
night. The biggest loss to Coach 
Amos Alonzo Stagg undoubtedly 
will be Evan Zlock, the most pro- 
lific point producer in Susquehan- 
na history. Valley fans well re- 
member Zlock who scored 40 
points in the game with the Dutch- 
men last season, although the 
LVC netmen won 8 6-73. Sole vet- 
erans from last year's team which 
won six games while dropping 
eleven, are Dick Westervelt of 
Bloomfield, N. J., and Jack Thorp 
of Athens, Pa. The rest of the 
varsity squad will probably con- 
sist of Norm Fleisher, 6'5" fresh- 
man from Lewistown; Charlie 
Zlock, brother of Evan and high 
scorer of the junior varsity squad 
last year; Bruce Wagner who saw 
quite a bit of varsity action dur- 
ing the 19 48-49 season; Ed Wol- 
leston, hard-working guard of last 
season's jayvee team; Ned Con- 
don, sharp-shooting guard from 
Port Chester, N. Y., and Jim Haz- 
lett, a smooth ball handler and 
varsity center on the Crusader 
football team from Tarentum, Pa.

mention. There were 62 backfield men listed (5 from Pennsylvania) 
but no DiJohnson. 

Why? That's the $64 question. 

But someone, somewhere, had seen the light. On Nov 29th INS 
announced their All-State Small College Team and Henry was at 
fullback— first team. The next night INS did it again. They announ- 
ced that DiJohnson was Pennsylvania's best small college plaver 
and indeed he is. ' 

In conclusion we pass the following story, about DiJohnson 
who else? ' 

During the Lincoln game, 49-0, L. V, Hank was having a good 
day, as usual. In the middle minutes of the second quarter he smash 
ed through the Lincoln line and was tackled after a long gain Hank 
as he usually always did after being tackled, grinned and said, "Nice 
tackle fellow, nice tackle." ' ce 

The Lincoln tackier, fought-out and weary looked nn n t rv 
Johnson and replied, "You sure are a good runner mfstt.' 'Vn t ha"t 
we all agree. "He's the greatest."

Kiscadden Fund And Reco 
Pool Discussed At Recent 
Student Faculty Meeting 

Meeting in regular session on 
Tuesday, December 6, at 4 P. M., 
the Student-Faculty Council acted 
on the report of the Solicitation 
Committee which calls for limited 
solicitation of ads from business 
places in Annville. The report also 
states that Faculty members are 
not to be approached for dona- 
tions, but that any contributions 
from this source are to be purely 
voluntary. Copies of the report as 
adopted will be sent to all campus 
organizations and Faculty mem- 
bers, and lists of organizations en- 
titled to solicit ads will be dis- 
tributed among local merchants. 

The president, Ray Kline, also 
requested the members to ask 
their respective organizations to 
act quickly as possible on the 
Kiscadden Fund and the Record 
Pool. These drives will be con- 
cluded as soon as reports from all 
organizations have been obtained. 

Al Moriconi and John Nilan 
have started the machinery roll- 
ing for a Di Johnson Day on cam- 
pus. More definite plans will be 
presented to the Council at the 
next meeting. 

Student Inspiration 
Seen In Atom Switch 

NEW YORK — College chem- 
istry and pharmacy students, 
sometimes beset by doubts about 
whether they've selected the right 
field for life work or often wond- 
ering what phase of pharmaceu- 
tical chemistry or industry to en- 
ter after graduation, can take in- 
spiration and guidance from the 
story of the development of one 
of the new anti-histamine tablets 
for the treatment of the common 

John D. Ratcliff, noted science 
writer, points this out in an article 
"Good-by to the Common Cold" 
in the December WOMAN'S HOME 
COMPANION, now on newsstands. 
Ratcliff's article concerns a red 
tablet called Coricidin, which he 
says is likely to be the "big medi- 
cal news of 1949." 

Coricidin is an anti-histamine 
cold tablet prescribed by physi- 
cians. It contains aspirin, phena- 
cetin and caffeine in addition to 
only 2 milligrams of Chlor-Trim- 
eton, an anti-histamine drug many 
times more potent than other 
earlier anti-histamines and more 
effective in counteracting allergies 
and aborting colds. 

The changing of an atom in a 
formula, the idea of one young 
chemist, thus may be a means by 
which doctors may control conta- 
gion of colds. 

Philo Discusses Second 
Semester Play And Plans 
For Proposed Operetta 

At the December meeting of Phi 
Lambda Sigma, a report was re- 
ceived from a special committee, 
headed by Charles Blaich, recom- 
mending that the society concen- 
trate its energies on a play during 
the second semester and make 
plans for an operetta next year. 
The report was adopted by the so- 
ciety and the Play Reading Com- 
mittee was instructed to have a re- 
port ready for the January meet- 

The president appointed the fol- 
lowing as a Refreshment Commit- 
tee for monthly meetings: Bob 
Kaufman, chairman; Allen Light, 
Bob Feaster, Wilson Shearer. 

Final deadline for payment of 
society dues was set by the trea- 
surer as the end of the first sem- 

A group photo was taken for 
the 1951 Quittie. 

Eastern Colleges Send 
Delegates To Fourth 
Annual Science Confa 

Delegates from more than 200 
colleges and universities in the 
eastern United States and Canada 
will participate in the fourth an- 
nual Eastern College Science Con- 
ference to be held at Barnard 
College in New York City on Fri- 
day and Saturday, April 28 and 
29, 1950. 

The Conference is designed to 
promote a free exchange of scien- 
tific research and thought among 
undergraduates through the pres- 
entation of student papers. The 
program will also include field 
trips, lectures by distinguished 
scientists, a student forum, and 
working demonstrations and ex- 
hibits by the various science de- 
partments at Barnard. 

The cancer research and radio- 
logical laboratories at the College 
of Physicians and Surgeons will 
be inspected by the delegates, as 
well as the cyclotrons and labor- 
atories used in the original Man- 
hattan project. In addition, be- 
hind-the-scenes tours have been 
arranged to the American Muse- 
um of Natural History, the New 
York Zoological Park, and the 
Botanical Gardens. 

Papers to be read at the Con- 
ference must be submitted by 
Wednesday, March 15. Complete 
information about the Conference 
has been mailed to the head of 
each science department. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, December 15, 1 94? La Vi 

Announcing . . . "Di Day" 

Elsewhere in La Vie this week, readers of the paper will discov- 
er many references to Hank Di Johnson, both as an athlete and per- 
sonality on campus. In the Student-Faculty articles reference is made 
to a Hank Di Johnson Day. To those persons who read the paper each 
week, the frequent mention of Hank is no surprise. There are few 
people anywhere who have done more for LVC than this Lebanon lad. 
His outstanding athletic work, plus his engaging personality have lent 
themselves to produce one of the most remarkable Valley students in 
the history of the college. What may come as news (but surely not as 
a surprise) is the fact that there will soon be a Hank Di Johnson Day 
on campus. 

March 1 will be "Di Day." It will be the climax of a campaign 
beginning as soon as the second semester gets under way. On Febru- 
ary 1 a student-wide fund-raising campaign will get under way to 
raise money to purchase gifts for Hank. These will be presented to 
him in a pre-game ceremony that evening in Lebanon. Many other 
plans have been discussed and other forms of public acknowledgement 
are beginning to take shape. All of these plans will be revealed at 
the begining of P'ebruary. It promises to be one of the biggest things 
to hit LVC in a long time. Don't forget. March 1 is "Di Day." 




In the annals of every college's athletic record there are those 
names which stand above every other, and surely the nam of Hank 
Di Johnson is destined to shine in the sports history of Lebanon Val- 
ley College. 

Hank Di Johnson — a name that is and has been on the lips of 
every sports fan in and around college in recent football seasons. 

Hank — a name as American as the football he plays so well, and 
the handle of a guy that is a sportsman in the good old American 

You all know his record. Staggering figures as Bill Fisher said, 
but the records are only a part. There are things that go into making 
a football player that can't be measured in figures of any kind — the 
sportsmanship, the grit, the pure, steel guts it takes to keep on play- 
ing when the chips are down. They're the abstract quantities that go 
into the makeup of a great gridiron artist, and Henry has proved that 
he possesses all these attributes in great proportions. 

Though number 5 5 jersey may be put in moth balls, it is a sure 
thing that Hank will never be shelved and forgotten in the minds and 
hearts of those of us at Lebanon Valley. 

So Here's to Hank, King Football for the Blue and White 

and the guy who helps to keep those Dutchmen flying.

a resident of Annville. He is con- 
certmaster of the Lebanon Valley 
Symphony and the College Orches- 
tra. His major instrument is the 
Violin. Bob also plays in the Col- 
lege Band, in which organization 
he played the Bass Drum during

After defeating Western Mary- 
land 79-77 in a hectic overtime 
thriller at the Green Terror's lair 
on December 6, the Lebanon Val- 
ley College cagers opened their 
1949-50 home season on a sad 
note by dropping a hard fought 
game to the lanky and speedy 
courtsters of Lincoln University, 
73-63 on Saturday night. The pre- 
liminary contest saw the Lebanon 
Valley Junior Varsity make Dick 
Fox's cage coaching debut a suc- 
cess as they slaughtered the Read- 
ing Air Force Base team, 52-2 0. 

In the Lincoln tussle, Coach 
Ralph Mease's charges encount- 
ered difficulty in making their 
shots sink during the first half and 
thereby were on the short end of 
a 43-23 halftime score. Most of 
the Valley shots were hitting the 
basket, but it was a dismal sight 
for the Blue and White rooters 
when the ball would go all over, 
except in. Lincoln's heighty squad 
was in control of the backboards 
and managed to grab majority 
of the rebounds that should have 
been Dutchmen points. Red Lang- 
staff was one of the main cogs in 
the Valley aggregation since, al- 
though he didn't make all his 
shots count he managed to draw 
fouls by using his underhand lay- 
up method. 

After intermission Floyd Beck- 
er began to find the mark more 
consistently and the Dutchmen 
gradually kept chopping down 
the twenty or so, point bar- 
rier that remained between 
them and Lincoln. Lincoln's fast 
stepping cagers, coached by for- 
mer NYU great, Irving "Moon" 
Mondschein, were hard to stop, 
although the Valley managed to 
pull within ten points of the Lions 
with four minutes left. Bad 
breaks however, broke up the 
rally and the contest ended in fa- 
vor of the visitors. Becker led 
the scoring parade with 22 points 
while Larry Kinsella, who drove 
hard all evening and worked well 
around the backboards tossed in 
19. Langstaff once again figured 
prominently in the scoring by reg- 
istering an even dozen markers. 
Ben Brown of Lincoln, took high 
scoring laurels for the encounter 
by sizzling the hoops for 2 1, while 
teammates Lloyd Thornhill and 
Bob Smith accounted for 20 and 
12, respectively. 

PROPAGANDA— from p. 2 

At Westminster, Maryland, the 
Measemen presented the fans with 
a great rally in the second half as 
they managed to eek out a 79-77 
triumph in a hair-raising overtime 
period which saw the Dutchmen 
come from behind after trailing 
39-29 at the half and throw up 
42 points in the final two periods 
to send the score into a 71-all tie. 
The Blue and White went into the 
last canto trailing 5 5-45 and then 
began to show their basketball 
prowess to the Southerners. 
Flashy Floyd Becker sank two 
field goals to cut the lead to six 
points and after each team traded 
baskets, the Marylanders held a 
6 8-63 lead with three minutes left 
to go. Henry Di Johnson then 
poked one in and Eddie Frazier 
canned a foul to slice the margin 
to 68-66 with two minutes remain- 
ing. Press, who racked up 30 
points for the Green and Gold, 
followed up the Dutchmen scoring 
with his own and gave the home- 
sters a 71-6 6 edge with the clock 
rapidly running out. 

Richie Furda, frosh guard from 
Elizabeth, New Jersey, then rang 
up a foul as did Langstaff and 
Frazier, thus making the score 
71-69 with twenty seconds left. 
Becker then provided a dramatic 
moment which saved the game as 
he stole a backward pass at mid- 
court, dribbled through the West- 
ern Maryland team for a layup and 
the game was deadlocked at 71- 
all as time ran out. Lebanon Val- 
ley took the lead for the first 
time as Furda registered on an 
underhand shot for the first score 
in the overtime session. Langstaff, 
who played a sensational game all 
night, then flipped in a jump shot 
after a rebound and the Dutch- 
men were off. The Terrors tried 
desperately to overcome the Val- 
ley lead but the Dutchmen froze 
the ball and racked up the win. 
However, Western Maryland man- 
aged two shots at the bucket be- 
fore Larry Kinsella, who played 
well as a backboard ace during the 
game, picked up the ball in order 
to prevent a do-or-die point at- 
tempt by the now panicky Mary- 

Floyd Becker led the scoring 
with 22 points, followed by Larry 
Kinsella with 19, and Red Lang- 
staff with 14. 

isted while our country had a frontier. The west was a safety valve 
for the industrial east whenever it had a spell of depression. Today 
our nation is highly concentrated and industrialized and has sharply 
limited chances for expansion. As a result the federal government 
must render far more services in order to promote the general wel- 
fare. These services are necessary and are enjoyd by ALL of our people. 

This article is not intended as an unqualified endorsement of 
Pres. Truman. On the contrary it aims to stimulate clear thinking. 
Pres. Truman has his weaknesses — he has made injudicious pro- 
nouncements, he has made numerous inferior appointments, and his 
pal, "Five-Percenter" Gen. Vaughan, is certainly no "Maragon" of 
virtue. But let us give credit where it is due. Pres. Truman has con- 
sistently advocated a realistic budget and taxing policy. He has also 
advocated reorganization of the Executive Department in line with the 
Hoover Commission report. Below-the-belt propaganda will not help 
to solve the problems of a troubled world, but progressive statesman- 
ship can do it. And our citizens must, in turn, be aware of the insidi- 
ous nature of modern propaganda methods.
